Jol holding on to fringe players
Fulham manager Martin Jol has ruled out any fringe players going out on loan because they are needed as back-up at the Cottage.
The former Tottenham boss was willing to allow Matthew Briggs, Pajtim Kasami and Marcello Trotta to go out on loan and get the opportunity of regular football. But the Dutchman missed on some of his transfer deadline-day targets so will opt to keep them at the club as cover. All three of the youngsters started on the bench for Saturday's 3-0 win over West Brom and Kasami was given a run out in the closing stages. He said: "We've had some enquiries but at the moment I need all of these players. "Trotta's making big steps and I can't let him go. There were quite a few clubs, even abroad, that wanted to get him on loan but I would like to keep them all. "They're always knocking on the door. You saw what happened in the transfer window so other players will get opportunities now." "Hopefully everything will be fine with John Arne Riise. He was injured two weeks ago and Briggs came in against Man United and did well. They will stay here for the next period."
