Late news coming from Fulham this evening as they have signed midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong on loan from Arsenal.

The combative player moves across London to join the Cottagers on a loan deal until the end of the season.

Frimpong has found first team football difficult to come by at Arsenal, after only making 16 appearances for the club since breaking into their full squad in 2011.

He spent last season on loan at Wolverhampton Wanderers when they were in the Premier League making five appearances for the club before rupturing his knee ligament effectively ruling him out for the rest of the season.

This year he has been playing regular football in the Championship at Charlton Athletic, where he made six appearances for The Addicks under Manager Chris Powell.

His loan at The Valley finished at the start of January, and has wasted no time in moving across London once again to showcase his talents at Craven Cottage who are in need of strong tackling midfielders in their quest to pull them clear of the Premier League relegation zone.

He will go straight into the squad for their forthcoming game against West Ham United on Wednesday
