Fulham Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Stanislav Manolev on loan until the summer of 2013 with an option of two further years.

The 27-year-old right-back, who joins on loan from PSV Eindhoven, is a Bulgaria international and has represented his country on 29 occasions.

Manolev moved to Litex Lovech from Pirin 1922 in 2005. He spent three seasons at Litex and helped his side to the Bulgarian National Cup in 2008, scoring the only goal in the final, as well as helping the team retain the trophy a year later in 2009.

He moved to PSV Eindhoven in 2009. He has made 76 appearances for the Dutch side and, last season, lifted the Dutch KNVB Cup when PSV defeated Heracles Almelo 3-0 in the Final. 

"I came here to play but I know that I have to fight for my place," Stanislav told fulhamfc.com after signing. "I am looking forward to playing in the Barclays Premier League because I believe it is the best competition in the world.

"I know Martin Jol already because when I came to Holland, we played against Ajax when he was the coach. I hope that if I play well here then I will be able to stay beyond the summer."
