Fulham manager Martin Jol says he has not yet decided whether to try to sign Emmanuel Frimpong from Arsenal on a permanent deal.
The 21-year-old midfielder has made five appearances for the Whites since being signed on loan in January.
Jol believes Frimpong, who will not be eligible to play against the Gunners in Saturday’s London derby at Craven Cottage, has a bright future.
“You couldn’t say that Frimpong is a typical Arsenal player,” he said.
“He is aggressive – a little warrior – but he is very young and I feel he has a very good future ahead of him.
“He was a very good option for us. We were a bit under pressure and we needed midfielders.
“In hindsight we are very happy he is here. He has played his part. Not a big part, but a part.”
Jol added: “There have been no talks yet – the season hasn’t finished.
“I am 100% certain he will play a part for us and we can make an assessment on him and talk to Arsenal.”
