Fulham Football Club is delighted to announce the loan signing of Urby Emanuelson until the end of the 2012/13 season.

The 26-year-old Dutch international joins on loan from AC Milan and can play on the left side of the pitch at either full-back or midfield.

Emanuelson’s progress from Ajax’s youth system earned him a first senior start for the Amsterdam side in 2004. He made 240 appearances in seven seasons, winning three KNVB Cups and three Dutch Super Cups before moving to AC Milan in January 2011 and winning the Serie A title that season.

He was a member of the Netherlands squad that won the UEFA U21 Championship in 2006 and was voted best left-back in the UEFA team of the tournament.

He has earned 16 caps for the Dutch senior side since making his debut against the Republic of Ireland in 2006. 

Martin Jol worked with Emanuelson during his time as manager of Ajax in 2009/10.
