Fulham defender Matthew Briggs has joined Peterborough United on a month's loan.

We revealed last month that boss Martin Jol wanted to send the youngster out to gain first-team experience once he returned to fitness following an injury playing for the reserves.

The England U21 international is third in the pecking order for the left-back berth at Craven Cottage behind John Arne Riise and Chris Baird.

Briggs has been restricted to 14 appearances this season, but just two of those have come in the Premier League.

However, the youngster will now get the opportunity to get regular football after penning a one-month deal at London Road.

Fulham FC statement:
Fulham Football Club can confirm that Academy graduate Matthew Briggs has joined Peterborough United on loan.

The England Under-21 International, who featured regularly in the First Team's Europa League campaign, will remain at London Road for one month.
