Leeds United manager Simon Grayson insists that loaning out striker Davide Somma again this season is not an option.
The South African hit-man spent time with Chesterfield and Lincoln City last term in order to get a feel of English football.
Grayson is happy with Somma's development and has hinted he will play a role for Leeds in the Championship this season.
Leeds have lost Jermaine Beckford this summer and, while they have brought in Billy Paynter, places are up for grabs when the new campaign kicks off next month.
Lincoln have been linked with a fresh move for Somma, but Grayson insists the 25-year-old will not be leaving Elland Road on a temporary basis.
"We know we've got a player there and we've got no intention of letting him go out on loan again," Grayson told the Yorkshire Evening Post.
"That served a purpose last season in getting him used to the English game."
