Fulham manager Martin Jol has given the green light for Marcello Trotta to stay at Wycombe Wanderers for the rest of the reason.
The Fulham frontman has bagged six goals in as many games since joining the Chairboys on loan in November, including a hat-trick in the Boxing Day victory over Exeter.
And Craven Cottage chief Jol is happy for the 19-year-old to remain at Adams Park as long as Fulham don't suffer a striker crisis.
He said: "It's important for him to play games. Wycombe and the manager [Gary Waddock] wanted him badly.
"That was good because we've got other players out on loan who, if they're not playing, I'd rather they stay here.
"He will stay there as long as we're fine with our strikers. There's a recall clause, so if I need him he will come back."
Jol reckons the Italian would be near the top of the League One scoring charts if he had made the switch on the summer.
He added: "He's a goalscorer - in the box he's lethal.
"If you look at that league there's other players who have scored loads of goals, like [Jordan] Rhodes at Huddersfield. But I feel Trotta - if he had been there from the start of the season - would've scored loads of goals."
