Kevin Mbabu has joined Servette on loan for the reminder of the season, Fulham have confirmed this afternoon.

The Swiss international defender returns to his first club after an underwhelming start to his Craven Cottage career. The 27 year-old, a £5m signing from VfL Wolfsburg last summer, has only made seven appearances for Marco Silva – and the Whites loaned in Cedric Soares to provide competition for Kenny Tete.

Mbabu, who set up Aleksandar Mitrovic’s last-minute winner against Brentford in August, could feature for Servette at rock bottom Winterthur on Wednesday evening.
