The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Jamie Holt

MICHAEL Turner ad­mits he’s glad to be home af­ter head­ing to Lon­don to help Ful­ham avoid the drop.

Turner, born in Lewisham, has played for Charl­ton, Ley­ton Ori­ent and Brent­ford in his ca­reer and joins his fourth cap­i­tal club un­til the end of the sea­son.

The Cot­tagers are placed pre­car­i­ously above the rel­e­ga­tion zone, but the 31-year-old has vowed to help their cause af­ter sign­ing on loan from Nor­wich.

“It’s been go­ing on for just over a week now, and as soon as I heard of their in­ter­est I wanted to come here straight away,” said Turner.

“I’ve been away from Lon­don for a num­ber of years. Get­ting back home is some­times dif­fi­cult but I’m pleased to be back in the cap­i­tal to play my foot­ball.

“I be­lieve I can add some ex­pe­ri­ence to the team. There are some young play­ers here and I’m sure they can lean on the more ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers like my­self.

“The Cham­pi­onship is a tough league, as Ful­ham have found out this year. It can be un­for­giv­ing and I want to have a big in­flu­ence.

“We’ll be look­ing to get a few wins to pull our­selves clear, and if that is the case, hope­fully we can fin­ish in a fairly good po­si­tion.”
