Football League World’s Fulham fan pundit David Gadd has assessed the potential early January return of midfielder Jean Michael Seri from his loan with Galatasaray.
According to Turkish outlet TRT Sport, via Sport Witness, the giants are keen to ship the Ivorian back to South West London after what has been a lacklustre season so far.
But although Gadd is sceptical of the return, he believes that Seri could still contribute.
Would Seri get into Fulham's current starting XI?
“I think he’d add that bit more quality to the squad that is already full of top Championship players,” the regular punter told Football League World.
“I think he could add that final ball we’ve been craving for just to open up teams at the back.
“Having said that we have certainly got the players to do it, it’s just not happening for them at the moment which is very frustrating to see as they undoubtedly have the quality within them.
“But I don’t think coming back would do him any good especially coming into a league as relentless as the Championship.”
Seri came to Fulham for a club record £25million transfer fee last summer from Nice and went on to make 34 appearances, scoring once and assisting three more.
However, he was deemed surplus to requirements by Scott Parker in the summer and shipped out to the Turkish league.
But since joining he has made just six league appearances and scored one goal, and with Galatasaray limited on the number of foreign players they are allowed to sign each season, they are keen to ship him out in January.
