On Friday the club announced a short-term loan deal for Middlesbrough's James Husband.

Husband, who was also on a month-long loan at Fulham for the final month of last season, returns to help at the fullback position to compensate for injuries involving loanee Luke Garbutt and Jack Grimmer. In return, Fulham has sent center back Fernando Amorebieta to Middlesbrough on a season-long loan.

Starting five times for Fulham in the 14/15 campaign, the 21-year-old man from Leeds was one of the few bright spots in a squad who was fighting to stay above the relegation line. Due to his time with the Whites last season, he is familiar with manager Kit Symon's system and the majority of the team, so he should easily transition into the squad. It is expected he will be the first-choice left back while in SW6.
