Welsh Under-21 international Josh Pritchard has played down the possibility of making his loan move from Fulham to Tromso IL permanent.
The 21-year-old joined the Norwegian club on a six-month deal in February, but his stay ended in disappointment as the club were relegated from the Tippeligaen.
Pritchard believes that he has gained valuable experience during his time in Norway and now wants to fight for a place in Martin Jol's first team.
"I have developed as a player here but I will be travelling back to England in December," The Express quotes him as saying.
The Stockport-born midfielder signed for the Cottagers after being released by Manchester United in the summer of 2009.
