Rene Meulensteen is considering keeping Dan Burn at Fulham rather than sending him back to Birmingham on loan.
The 21-year-old was recalled from his spell at St Andrews earlier this month and has put in impressive displays in the FA Cup ties against Norwich.
Meulensteen was ready to let the towering defender return to the Championship club to continue his development, but admits he's had a re-think.
He said: "Dan's been a breath of fresh air. He did well in the Norwich away game.
"Him staying here now is definitely something we're going to review, definitely.
"That's a different challenge from playing at home, but he's matured a lot in Birmingham where he had a very good loan spell.
"And next to Brede Hangeland he looked extremely comfortable.
"The only way that I keep them apart is that he's right footed and Dan's left footed.
"You work with him on the pitch - it's great for someone like Dan to have Brede coming back from that injury so they can work together.
"Dan is a very bright boy, he's not afraid to speak his mind, he talks, and that's the sort of thing you look at, and it was a very positive performance from him."
