Martin Jol has praised new loan signing Emmanuel Frimpong as the Ghanaian midfielder prepares to make his Fulham debut when West Ham come to Craven Cottage tonight.

Frimpong, 21, has previously spent time on loan at Wolves and Charlton and Jol says he is a player he knows well.

“As for Frimpong, I know this guy. I saw him play in the reserves, play for Wolves and at Charlton.,” he told Fulham’s official website. “He is a warrior.”

Jol is hoping to bring in more new faces before the transfer window closes tomorrow, with reports suggesting AC Milan’s Urby Emanuelson could be on the way.

“Of course you want to do your business in the first week of January, but we are now in the last days,” Jol said.

“That is not what you want but I can assure you we worked ever so hard and we would like to have a few quality players.

“I think we don’t only need back-up players, I think we need players that can play and be good off the ball.”
