Fulham youngster Ismael Ehui says he has no intention of staying with Scunthorpe for any length of time.

The French striker has immediately attained cult status at Glanford Park – despite making just two substitute appearances – after his recent arrival on loan from Fulham.

But the 19-year-old says he has his sights firmly set on breaking into the Cottagers first-team although he believes his spell spent under the careful gaze of Iron boss Brian Laws (pictured) should serve him well.

“I am here to get a bit of first-team experience,” he revealed to the Scunthorpe Telegraph. “And then I hope one day I will make it in the Fulham first-team.

“I love it at Fulham. Everyone helps out the young players there.

“Chris Coleman is a great manager. Obviously as I am a striker, and he used to be a defender, he knows what can help me progress. He knows what kind of things defenders don’t like to face.

“I have played a few games for the reserves. I played with Mark Pembridge, who has been playing with the reserves because he is coming back from injury.

“Philippe Christanval, another French player who is a really good player, has been playing there too because he has been injured most of the season.

“But really it has been a young side most of the season.

“There are a lot of good young players there. Michael Timlin, who has come up here with me, is a great player. I have played with him all season.”
