Fernando Amorebieta has made a dramatic return to Fulham on transfer deadline day.

The Whites defender had been due to remain on loan at the Riverside Stadium for the whole of this season’s Championship campaign.

However, the Craven Cottage club are under transfer embargo and have had to get creative in their dealings in the market this January.

That has meant an early return for the Venezuela international after Fulham decided to cut his stay on Teesside shorter than expected.

Amorebieta will now spend the second half of the campaign back in west London with new manager Slavisa Jokanovic after making 16 appearances for the Teessiders.
