Fulham manager Martin Jol believes Josh Pritchard's ongoing development would benefit from another loan spell.
The promising midfielder has spent much of 2013 away in Norway with Tromso - making 28 appearances and turning out in the Europa League.
He has now returned to Craven Cottage after expressing a desire to challenge for a first-team role with his Premier League club.
Jol is, however, of the opinion that he requires further fine-tuning of his game elsewhere.
Fulham have already sent a number of their young stars out on short-term deals this season - including Marcello Trotta, Cauley Woodrow and Dan Burn.
Pritchard could soon be following them through the exits, with regular game time required if he is to get his wish of becoming a senior star with the Cottagers.
Jol said in the Fulham Chronicle: "Josh is back. Hopefully he will get the opportunity to go on loan and get games under his belt.
"The structure in the club is that once they've played in the U21s for six months to a year, they have to go on loan.
"The only trouble is there's not a lot of clubs who will take youngsters who are 18, 19, 20.
"There are six or seven players still here who should be on loan. If they get the opportunity, I'll look to do it."
