Fulham will be desperate to ensure that their stay back in the Championship is a short one following their emphatic relegation from the Premier League.
However, one player who will not be of any help in that quest is defensive midfielder Andre Anguissa, who made the move to Craven Cottage from Marseille for £22.5million last summer but never made the grade in his short spell in English.
21 appearances were made in his debut season but he could not manage a single goal or assist, nor could he provide adequate defensive protection, as the Whites were dumped from the top flight.
He is still owned by the South West Londoners, but was sent out on loan for the season, with the 23-year-old moving to La Liga with Villareal for the campaign.
But just how is he getting on?
In fairness to the Cameroonian, he appears to have rediscovered his form over in the Mediteranean climate, starting seven of the club’s eight league matches and proving to be the defensive rock he couldn’t for Fulham.
His pass accuracy for the season stands at a mighty 89% and he has won 50% of his duels as well as 63% of his aerial battles.
He is also currently making an average of just under four interceptions per game, a total of 26 for the season so it is safe to say that his underwhelming spell in England has given him the adequate kick in the right direction.
Was it a mistake Fulham loaned him out? No. He struggled in the English game and bringing in someone who knows that role like Harry Arter is always going to be smarter.
But at the same time, they may just be glad that he is only away on loan.
