Fulham announced Thursday that it has taken
AC Milan’s Urby Emanuelson on loan until the end of the season.

Emanuelson, who has played under Cottagers manager Martin Jol during his time
at Ajax, can operate in either defense or in midfield. The 26-year-old
Emanuelson has earned 16 caps for the Netherlands.

“It is not easy to get players from AC Milan on a permanent basis,” Jol said
after Fulham’s 3-1 defeat of West Ham United on Wednesday. “I coached him at
Ajax. He is a skilful player, very agile. He is very mobile, quick. He can
play left midfield, wide, play [the No. 10 role], so I feel we need fresh
legs.”
