The dearth of talent in Fulham's central midfield is about to become yet more significant with manager, Martin Jol, admitting that he would like to see Pajtim Kasami sent out on loan.

After losing Danny Murphy, Dickson Etuhu, Marcel Gecov and Moussa Dembele from the middle of the park, there are major doubts as to how well both Steve Sidwell and Mahamadou Diarra can cope but Jol, usually keen on blooding youngsters at Craven Cottage, is seemingly not concerned about letting another midfielder, in Kasami, go.

Kasami has blown hot and cold since his arrival from Palermo last summer, showing glimpses of his talent at various stages in his debut season but never truly breaking into the first team. A row over a missed penalty led to the Swiss 19 year-old being fined and, since that day, Kasami has found first team football to be a scarcity.

Still, his talent is undeniable and Juventus' pursuit of the midfielder over January proves as such.

Jol, however, was slightly more succinct with his assessment of the player.

"Kasami is a youngster and if everyone is sound and well he won't start, he knows that," he told the Fulham Chronicle.

"That's a bit of a problem with him because he wants to play all the time.

"I feel he should do a bit better and push for a starting place but he's not there yet.

"I think he could benefit from a loan spell."
