LOAN WATCH: Brentford loanee Trotta determined to join Berbatov in Fulham's first team

Marcello Trotta is determined to use his loan spell with Brentford as a stepping stone to regular first team football with Fulham.

The 20-year old Italian striker is undergoing his second stint with Uwe Rosler's Bees and hopes to use the experience as a way to improve his game so he can play alongside Dimitar Berbatov in Martin Jol's Fulham side.

Trotta spent time with Napoli and Manchester City during his youth days but is determined to become a Cottagers senior star in the next few years.

"In 2008, I had the opportunity to undertake this adventure in England with Manchester City and I'm happy with my choice," Trotta told tuttomercatoweb.com.

"Clubs here follow you with great attention, especially if you are very young. Then I had the good fortune to work with Martin Jol, who is a great coach.

"This is an important season for me because I hope to help Brentford to achieve promotion and to have a chance in Fulham's first team, with whom I have a contract until 2015.

"My model? I was lucky enough to train with Dimitar Berbatov and I tried to learn as much as possible from him. He is one of the strongest players in the Premier League's history."
