Aboubakar Kamara has joined Dijon on loan for the remainder of the season, Fulham have confirmed this evening.

The 25 year-old forward reportedly turned down the chance to move to Middlesbrough and preferred to return to France with Dijon, who are currently second from bottom in Ligue 1. Kamara has made eleven appearances for Fulham this season – scoring once against Sheffield Wednesday in the League Cup – but his only starts have come in the cup competitions. His opportunities have been limited since Ademola Lookman and Ruben Loftus-Cheek have stepped into the first team after arriving on loan.

The former Amiens forward, who moved to Craven Cottage for around £5m in summer 2017, was part of the Fulham sides who won promotion from the Championship in 2018 and 2020. Kamara has scored seventeen goals in 89 appearances during his Fulham career.
