Brentford manager Uwe Rosler has heaped praise on Chelsea loanee George Saville, and hopes to extend the youngster's stay at Griffin Park beyond January, reports Sky Sports.
The 20-year-old midfielder has impressed during his brief spell with the League One outfit, so much so that the Bees boss is already looking towards agreeing another deal with Saville's parent club.
With competition for first-team places at Stamford Bridge at an all-time high, Jose Mourinho has allowed a number of emerging young stars to take up loan spells away from the club, in a bid to gain experience of playing regular football.
Saville left Chelsea temporarily during the summer, and has gone on to make 17 appearances for Brentford this season, drawing plenty of plaudits from his manager and team-mates.
Rosler anticipates that Saville will get even better, and is planning to speak with Chelsea in the hope of at least securing his short term future.
"George Saville has fulfilled our expectations," the German coach told the Fulham Chronicle. "He is a great player and can be even better - there's great potential in him.
"He's hungry and he likes it here. We'll try to do something in January and maybe in the summer as well."
