GARY Waddock says there are no hard feelings after Marcello Trotta rejected a chance to extend his loan period at Adams Park this week.

The 19-year-old went back to his parent club Fulham despite boss Martin Jol saying he could stay in Wycombe if he wanted.

Instead, Trotta is hoping that his eight-goal blast will alert Championship clubs and Waddock admis he understands the decision.

He said: “I’m disappointed we haven’t got a player of his quality, but we’d like to thank him for what he’s done in the eight games he played for us.

“Eight goals is a fantastic return and if he wants to test himself at a higher level, if that opportunity comes around for him, we wish him good luck.

“We would love to have kept him, for sure, but I had a conversation with him and understood why he wanted to do it and his reasons behind it.

“We have to take into account that he’s with a Premier League club. He’s done extremely well since he’s been here and if there is interest from Championship clubs we can’t stand in the way of his development.

“He’s given us eight very good games with a fantastic goal return.”
