Fulham have missed out on signing Arsenal midfielder Daniel Crowley to Willem II, according to reports in Holland.
The Eredivisie club have reportedly beaten off the competition, which included Slavisa Jokanovic's side, to the highly rated 19-year-old's signature.
The midfielder has one year left on his deal at the Emirates but has decided that he is best served leaving the north London side in order to gain regular football and build his career away from the glare at the Emirates Stadium.
Crowley spent time in Holland last season on loan, scoring twice in 16 games for the Go Ahead Eagles but it was in vain as the Dutch side were relegated at the end of the last campaign.
The England U19 international has had loan spells at Barnsley and Oxford in the past, scoring twice in six appearances for the latter in League One in the first half of last season.
