Fulham have confirmed the signing of Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong, on loan for the rest of the season.

Frimpong, 21, has recently returned from a six-week loan spell with Championship side Charlton Athletic, where he featured six times for the Addicks.

The Ghanaian-born youngster has failed to make the breakthrough into the Arsenal first-team and suffered a seven-month injury lay-off on account of a cruciate knee injury while on loan at Wolves last season

The Cottagers revealed the move on their official Twitter feed, with Frimpong also acknowledging it by writing: "Fulham here I come''.

A statement on the Arsenal website read: "Everyone at the club wishes Emmanuel the best of luck during his time with Fulham."
