Fulham boss Martin Jol is delighted with the impact of his loan signings this season.
Jol said: "It was a fantastic situation for us because it lifted us in training and created more competition for places.
"The only thing for them was everyone stayed fit, where as before we had a few problems with injuries.
"In hindsight, it worked very well for us. Frimpong was the first player on loan, I needed him but then [Steve] Sidwell played with [Giorgos] Karagounis and done well.
"It's better to have them then not to have them. They've helped raised the level."
