San Siro utility man on his way to Craven Cottage with Swiss international in loan exchange…
According to Italian daily Gazzetta dello Sport, the Cottagers are taking the out-of-favor Dutchman to Craven Cottage before the window slams shut.
The 26-year-old, who can play in a number of positions, has fallen down the San Siro pecking order and appears keen on garnering some much needed playing time. He is now on route to London where he will undergo a medical.
“I will finish the season with a loan deal,” he told De Telegraaf. “I have worked in a very good way with 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 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.”
According to latest reports, Fulham midfielder Pajtim Kasami may to be included in the deal. Super-agent Mino Raiola has been working on a way to make that happen, according to Sky Sport. The Macedonian-born Switzerland Under-21 midfielder is looking to leave the Cottagers having only featured three times this season for Martin Jol’s side.
The 20-year-old joined Fulham from Palermo in 2011 but he hasn’t been able to consistently force himself into the West London side.
