Fulham winger Sylvester Jasper has joined Bristol Rovers for the remainder of the season on loan.
The Bulgarian under-21 international started the season in sensational form for Steve Wigley’s under 21 side, scoring in the young Whites’ 3-1 opening day win over West Ham, but picked up an injury in the following week’s 3-0 dismantling of Chelsea at Kingsmeadow. Jasper, who has enjoyed loan spells at Colchester United and Hibernian over the past twelve months, could make his first appearance for the Gas in Saturday’s game against Morecambe at the Memorial Stadium.
Jasper, who has made three senior appearances for Fulham since making his senior debut at Manchester City in an FA Cup fourth round defeat in 2020, has won four under-21 caps for Bulgaria, for whom he qualifies through his mother’s nationality.
Rovers boss Joey Barton told the club’s official website this afternoon:
“It’s no secret we’ve been in the market for wide players and Syl fits the profile of what we’ve been looking for. He’s a young, hungry, dynamic winger and I hope he will excite our fans with his style of play.”
