Eastleigh will give Fulham first refusal on 17-year-old striker Sam Wilson.

After a successful week's assessment with the Premier League club, the former Wildern schoolboy scored twice on trial for Fulham's academy side in a 4-1 win over Portsmouth on Saturday.

Now, following lengthy talks with the Londoners, Eastleigh have agreed not to allow any other club to jump the queue for the remainder of 2011.

Spitfires director of football Dave Malone confirmed: "Fulham were very, very impressed with Sam and they will continue to monitor his progress in the coming months.

"We have agreed with Fulham that we will not covet interest in the player from other clubs for a period of time and we will review that situation in the new year."
