Fulham offload Rui Fonte on loan

Fulham offload Rui Fonte on loan

Fulham have enjoyed a rather impressive start to life in the Premier League as they secured another point against Brighton and Hove Albion today. 

The Cottagers will be desperate to ensure their safety in the current campaign having spent a load of cash this summer. Although, Slavisa Jokanovic did offload one of his fringe players yesterday, as according to Fulham’s official website, Rui Fonte has joined French club LOSC Lille on a season-long loan.

Fulham forward Rui Fonte has joined French side LOSC Lille on a season-long loan deal, subject to approval by the French Football authorities.

The 28-year-old was used as a squad rotation player last season and slipped even further down the pecking order due to the London club’s big summer splurge.

So, he will now be playing his football over in France if things all go to plan, which gives him time to impress by getting regular minutes under his belt.

THE VERDICT:

The Cottagers will be hoping that Rui Fonte’s loan move is a success as he could then be offloaded for a fee or could work his way back into Slavisa Jokanovic’s plans.

Indeed, the Portuguese striker’s future was put in doubt after Fulham secured the services of Aleksandar Mitrovic on a permanent deal, but this won’t bother Jokanovic as the Serbian has been in fine form.
