Fulham boss Felix Magath intends to loan out more of his youngsters.
Josh Passley, Lasse Vigen Christensen and Ange-Freddy Plumain were among the academy prospects handed debuts by former boss Rene Meulensteen.
But Magath says the club's crop of talented youngsters need to go out on loan to develop.
He said: "I think that young players must play - they need practice. They need to be involved in game situations, so I prefer to loan them to other clubs."
