Urby Emanuelson has given his first words to the press since the news of his move to Fulham broke. The five month loan deal will see the 26 year old be working once again under manager Martin Jol, who each enjoyed success during their time at Ajax.

Talking to Dutch paper De Telegraaf, Emanuelson said:

“I will finish the season with a loan deal. I have worked in a very good way with him (Martin Jol) at Ajax and am happy as he gives me the chance. Martin has a lot of confidence in me and that’s what I need right now. At AC Milan I ended up on the bench from nowhere and I was really shocked with that. The previous two months were hard. At my age it is important to play week in, week out.”
