The Italian playmaker signed for Blues on loan from Watford for the final three months of the 2014/15 campaign, making a positive impact in only five appearances for Blues.

The following season, after a mixed loan spell at Middlesbrough, Blues swooped to sign Fabbrini on a permanent deal from Watford, for a reported fee of £1.5m.

But in his second spell at Blues, Fabbrini flattered to deceive, registering only one assist in 13 matches in the second half of the 2015/16 campaign.
