Fulham won’t be keeping on loan ace.
Fulham boss Martin Jol has confirmed that there will be no permanent deal for Urby Emanuelson at the end of the season, Sky Sports reports.
The 26-year-old has been on loan at Craven Cottage from Italian giants AC Milan since January, but Jol has ruled out a any chance of a permeant deal being struck, citing the players fee and wages being the stumbling block.
“You could see [on Saturday, a 1-0 defeat to Arsenal] that Urby is a nice, technical crowd-pleaser,” said Jol. “But there is not an option on him, because it would be impossible to buy him.”
He has made seven appearances for Jol’s men so far this season and has largely impressed, taking to the Premier League well in such a short space of time.
Emanuelson joined Milan in 2011 from Ajax where he began his career. After a bright start he saw his chances start to diminish, hence the move to West London.
With 16 caps for the Dutch national team under his belt, he could prove to be a useful and shrewd signing for a fellow Premier League side with a few million to spare over the summer.
He has yet to be called up for the national team this calendar year, but could still put himself in the running to board the plane to Brazil next year.
