Fulham man lined up for reunion with former club



Besiktas are considering an attempt to re-sign goalkeeper Fabri from Fulham in the January transfer window, a report from a print edition of Turkish outlet Takvim has claimed.

Fabri made the move to Craven Cottage from Besiktas back in the summer of 2018, but has since made just two appearances for the club, and was loaned out to Mallorca at the end of the last summer transfer window, although he has so far made only one solitary league appearance for the La Liga relegation battlers.

Now it appears as though a return to Turkey could potentially be an option for the 32-year-old, with the latest reports claiming that Besiktas are weighing up a move for Fabri come the summer transfer window.

It is also said that the Turkish giants are contemplating a move for fellow goalkeeper Sinan Bolat, who currently plays for Royal Antwerp in Belgium, as they look to add to their options between the posts ahead of next season.

There is currently just over a year remaining on Fabri’s current contract with Fulham, securing his future at Craven Cottage until the end of next season, although the club do have the option of extending that deal by a further 12 months.

Prior to his transfer to Fulham, Fabri had made 87 appearances in all competitions for Besiktas during a two-year spell with the club, where he helped them win the Turkish top-flight title in the 2016/17 season.

The Verdict

This may not be a bad move for Fabri.

It doesn’t look as though he has any chance of making an impact at Fulham, so a move elsewhere ought to suit him, as he looks for more regular game time.

A return to Besiktas, a club he is already familiar with, could be a good place for him to do that, and you feel Fulham could also be open to such a move to allow them to raise some funds from a player who hasn’t really contributed to their cause during his time with them.
