Jol plots loan spell for striker
Fulham boss Martin Jol is planning to send young striker Marcello Trotta out on loan again to aid the Italian's development.
The 20-year-old enjoyed a highly-rated productive stint with Wycombe last season where he scored eight goals in as many games in League One. However, a second temporary spell with Watford didn't go so well though as he made just one appearance for the Championship side in his month-long stay at Vicarage Road. Jol believes Trotta has a lot of potential and recently rewarded him with a new long-term deal at Craven Cottage, but his involvement with the first-team squad has been restricted to just one substitute outing against Sheffield Wednesday in the Capital One Cup. The Dutchman, who bolstered his attack with the signing of Dimitar Berbatov before the close of the summer transfer window, said: "He's my fourth striker, so for me there's no opportunity to put him on the bench in front of [Mladen] Petric or [Hugo] Rodallega. "There's a couple of clubs interested in him so I'm thinking about putting him on loan for a month and maybe even longer because he needs to play to develop."
