Fulham winger Neeskens Kebano has joined Middlesbrough on loan, the club have confirmed this evening.
The 28 year-old moves to the Riverside Stadium for the remainder of the season having struggled to hold down a starting place this season. Kebano’s only Premier League start came on the opening day against Arsenal and his other appearances have come in the domestic Cup competitions, where he scored the clinching goal in the FA Cup third win at QPR.
The Congolese international has scored fifteen goals in 99 appearances for Fulham since signing from Genk for £3.5m in August 2016. He joins Fulham goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli on loan at Middlesbrough, who are currently two points off the play-off places in the Championship.
What a shame! This little man had so much ability but was never given a chance.
When he did get a run, he was massively influential in us reaching the playoffs with some stand out goals.
Interesting to hear Neil Warnock say that he is considering playing Neeskens through the middle. I wonder that he was never given an opportunity upfront this season-given the dross that we have had to put up with.
Neeskens has a great deal of skill and tricks aplenty in his armoury.
He also has an eye for goal.
I wish him all the very best and I will be interested to see how he fares in the wilds of Middlesbrough. At least, Marcus now has company.
Totally underrated an underused at Fulham . Seri , Kamara and certainly Le Marchand understandable but Kebano ? Wish him all the best With Marcus … and glad he will get playing time – will not be surprised if he is key their promotion .
Never given a proper chance. Always looked to take on his marker, tracked back to help out and always gave 100%. Probably could have taken penalties too! Let’s hope we get him back if/when we go back down.
