Fulham are signing Urby Emanuelson from AC Milan on loan.

According to Italian daily Gazzetta dello Sport, the Cottagers are taking the out-of-favour Dutchman to Craven Cottage before the window slams shut.

Emanuelson was a fixture for Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri earlier this season, but lost his place in November and has struggled for playing time since.

The former Ajax schemer is unhappy with the situation, but will now be given more chance to play in England at Fulham.


Emanuelson will play under countryman Martin Jol; it is not clear whether the loan agreement includes an option for Fulham to make the move a permanent one.

Recently Emanuelson’s agent admitted that his client was unhappy with his situation at Milan and could not understand his lack of playing time.

As the former Ajax star leaves, Mario Balotelli will arrive, signed from Manchester City for a basic €20M, with €3M on add-ons.
