Fulham's Neil Etheridge has joined Bristol Rovers on loan

Bristol Rovers have signed goalkeeper Neil Etheridge from Fulham on loan.

The 22-year-old, who has 37 caps for the Philippines, will initially spend a month at the Memorial Stadium.

Etheridge joined the Fulham Academy in 2006 after three years as a trainee at Chelsea.

He made his senior debut for Fulham in UEFA Europa League against Danish club Odense BK last season.

Rovers Chairman Nick Higgs told the club's official website: "I would like to welcome Neil to the club, he adds some more competition for places between the posts.

"I would also like to thank Fulham for letting us have him for the next month."
