Fulham have concluded their busy January transfer window with deals for Manchester United duo Ryan Tunnicliffe and Larnell Cole on permanent deals.
The Cottagers also added former Olymipakos striker Konstantinos Mitroglou and Lewis Holtby on loan from Tottenham as Rene Meulensteen strengthened his squad with the club just a point off the bottom of the Premier League.
Fulham confirmed the deal for the United duo late on Friday night.
The Dutch manager is familiar with Tunnicliffe and Cole having worked closely with the pair during his time at Old Trafford. 21-year-old midfielder Tunnicliffe had just returned to Manchester following an impressive loan spell with Championship outfit Ipswich Town but only managed two appearances for United in brief League Cup appearances.
Similarly, Cole, who featured for United during the club's pre-season tour, failed to make a league appearance for the Premier League champions.
In a busy final few days for Fulham, the club also signed Danish midfielder William Kvist on loan from Stuttgart. The winter window also saw Muelsensteen offload a number of first team players as he sought to mould a side capable of keeping the Cottagers in the Premier League.
Brian Ruiz left Craven Cottage to join PSV Eindhoven on loan until the end of the season, while Northern Ireland international Aaron Hughes has joined Queens Park Rangers for an undisclosed fee.
In another late deal, Dimitar Berbatov completed a loan move to Monaco, joining the Ligue 1 giants on loan until the end of the season in the wake of news that Radamel Falcao will miss the remainder of the season through injury.

The Bulgarian's long term future remains in doubt however. The striker's contract at Craven Cottage expires this summer with little chance of either the player or the club seeking a renewal.
Philippe Senderos has also completed a move to Valencia.
