Getting minutes under his belt and helping Fulham climb the league table are Rohan Ince’s primary objectives during his time at the Club.
The 23-year-old was a regular in Brighton & Hove Albion’s starting XI over the past two seasons, but he’s been limited to 15 appearances this term, largely due to the form of central midfield duo Dale Stephens and Baram Kayal.
So when the opportunity arose to join Slaviša Jokanović’s Whites for the remainder of the season, there was no hesitation on Ince’s part.
“I’m happy to get the deal done,” he told the official website. “It’s been quite a hectic couple of days for me but I’m pleased it’s all sorted and now I can’t wait to get out there and hopefully play some good football.
“I haven’t been playing much at Brighton recently but I’ve been keeping fit and I want to get out and play. Fulham’s a great football club and they’ve given me the opportunity to do that, and I hope I play really well for them.”
The move marks a return to his native London for Ince, who spent more than a decade on Chelsea’s books prior to joining the Seagulls.
“I’ve always been an admirer of Fulham Football Club,” he admitted. “It’s quite close to my family as well, who are only 20 minutes down the road in Staines, so that was another good factor in coming to Fulham.
“I’ve met a few of the boys today but I’ll meet the rest of the group tomorrow, which will be good, I’m looking forward to that.
“It’s a good club. I hope to play as many games as possible and help get Fulham as high up the table as we can.”
