Football League World’s Fulham fan pundit David Gadd has urged his club not to agree to the recall of midfielder Jean Michael Seri in the January transfer window.
Seri was loaned out to Galatasaray during the summer transfer window after a disappointing opening campaign with the Whites but according to Turkish outlet TRT Sport, via Sport Witness, they are now eager to send him back to his parent club.
However, Gadd does not believe this would be a smart move.
If Seri returns, should he start for Fulham?
“I personally don’t think it would be a smart move and I believe most Fulham Fans would agree with me on that,” the regular punter told Football League World.
“I’m not saying he’s a bad player in fact he’s far from it.
“I just feel he had such a bad year at Fulham and in England that 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.
