Emanuelson nearing Fulham switch

Next Story

Fulham manager Martin Jol is close to bringing in AC Milan's Urby Emanuelson and PSV right-back Stanislav Manolev.

The Whites boss has so far been frustrated in his attempts to bring in reinforcements this month, with Emmanuel Frimpong the only first-team addition. However, Fulham are closing in on a number of players as the transfer deadline approaches, including Holland international Emanuelson.

Asked if he was close to signing him, Jol nodded and said: "It is a loan until the end of the season. It is not easy to get players from AC Milan on a permanent basis. I coached him at Ajax. He is a skilful player, very agile. He is very mobile, quick. He can play left midfield, wide, play number 10 so I feel we need fresh legs."
