Fulham have completed a fourth signing of the transfer window after agreeing a deal to sign defender Stanislav Manolev on loan for the remainder of the season from PSV Eindhoven with a view to a permanent move.

Manolev, a 27-year-old full-back, has made the switch from the Dutch top flight and joins permanent signing Chris David, who joined from FC Twente, and loan signings Emmanuel Frimpong from Arsenal and Urby Emanuelson from AC Milan.

Fulham manager Martin Jol was keen to bring in a new full-back after selling Stephen Kelly to Reading at the start of the month and opted to sign Manolev, who he was aware of from his time as Ajax boss in Holland.

Manolev will stay at Craven Cottage for the rest of the season and could turn the move into a permanent transfer with Fulham having the option to sign him for a further two years at the end of the current campaign.

Fulham had been linked with a move to sign teenage defender John Stones from Barnsley but were unwilling to meet the £3million valuation, and the 18-year-old now looks likely to head to Everton after opening talks with the Goodison Park club.
