Fulham boss Jol to retain fringe players Trotta, Briggs and Kasami

Fulham manager Martin Jol says that he will keep his squad players at the club rather than send them out on loan.

The likes of Marcello Trotta, Matthew Briggs and Pajtim Kasami have all been linked with possible temporary deals elsewhere to help develop their game in a first team environment but Jol feels they are important to the Craven Cottage outfit and plans to keep hold of them.

"We've had some enquiries but at the moment I need all of these players," he told the Fulham Chronicle.

"Trotta's making big steps and I can't let him go. There were quite a few clubs, even abroad, that wanted to get him on loan but I would like to keep them all.

"They're always knocking on the door. You saw what happened in the transfer window so other players will get opportunities now.

"Hopefully everything will be fine with John Arne Riise. He was injured two weeks ago and Briggs came in against Man United and did well. They will stay here for the next period."
