Fulham boss Martin Jol is keeping hold of striker Marcello Trotta.

Jol admits he's received offers for the Italian in recent weeks, but says the young forward will be needed in SW6 this season.

"We've had some enquiries for Marcello but as the situation is now I need him here," said Jol.

"He's making big steps and even though we've had enquiries from clubs - some from abroad - to take him on loan, I would like to keep him here."
