Fulham striker Lauri Dalla Valle hopes to extend his loan at Dundee United.

The Finland Under-21 striker was farmed out by Fulham to gain first-team experience - and has forced his way into manager Peter Houston's plans.

He said: "I am here until January and have been really happy with the way things have been going so far.

"I came here to play games and the big thing is I'm getting to do that.

"I am happy with the progress I have made and really enjoy playing for Dundee United.

"I have also been able to score a few goals, like against Dunfermline at the weekend, so it has been a good move for me.

"Obviously I will need to look at what Fulham and Dundee United are saying in January and I think we will sit down and discuss things.

"But I am really enjoying it here and if staying at Dundee United is what's best for everyone then it's possible."
