Fulham agree Emanuelson loan deal

News from Italy this evening as AC Milan midielder Urby Emanuelson is to join Fulham on loan.

The Dutch International is to fly to London tomorrow to undergo a medical with The Cottagers and to finalise a loan move until the end of the season.

The versatile player who can operate anywhere on the left side of defence or midfield, will help add extra quality to a side who are falling precariously close to the Premier League's relegation zone.

News of a loan deal being agreed for the 26-year old looks likely to means John Arne-Riise can move on to pastures new, after a recent bust-up with Manager Martin Jol.

With the recent arrival of Emmanuel Frimpong and the soon to be Emanuelson, any move for Ghanian midfielder Derek Boateng looks to be off.

Emanuelson has featured sixteen times for Holland, and has played over fifty games for AC Milan since his move from Ajax for £2 million in January 2011.
