MARTIN Jol has cleared the decks for his fringe players to go out on loan – but only if they're guaranteed first-team football.
David Stockdale , Bjorn Helge Riise and Lauri Dalla Valle are among the Fulham players getting game time elsewhere, and boss Jol is happy for more members of his reserves to make the temporary switch away from Craven Cottage.
Jol recalled Keanu Marsh-Brown from Dundee United due to his lack of first-team action, and the Dutchman has warned any interested parties he doesn't expect his stars to be stuck warming the bench.
He said: “We've got a few reserve team players who could do with a month's loan. But, on the other hand, if they don't play it's a problem.
“In England they promise he will always play the first game and after that he will be on the bench.
“If you're 18 or 19 like [Marcello] Trotta, who has scored goals in the reserves, there would be no point him being at a Championship team and not playing.
“We'll talk to them, tell them my ideas, and if they want to stay and continue their development that's fine with me.”
