Fulham boss Martin Jol would have no hesitation in signing Emmanuel Frimpong on loan again next season.

The 21-year-old is due to return to Arsenal this summer, but Jol would like to keep the Ghanaian for longer.

"He is on loan at the moment and it would be quite expensive to take him (permanently), but if there was an opportunity to take him on loan again, I would probably do that," Jol said.

"It is quite a nice position to be in, to get a loan player you don't have to pay a transfer fee. It is a good way of doing things."

"We spoke about (discipline)," Jol said.

"In my day you could tackle, but now you have to stay on your feet.

"I was impressed with him from the start. Two years ago I saw him and he is the type of player you would like as a manger because he is versatile and he has got this mentality.

"But he can play as well, he is an Arsenal player. He is one of the few players who has been at Arsenal since a young age.

"I think Sunderland away would suit him. His fitness is getting better and better. He did well when he played for us against Norwich. He is fully fit now so I can play him from the start if I want to."
