Franck Tabanou will spend the remainder of the season on loan to Ligue 1 side St Etienne, the same club that sold the left back to Swansea over the summer.
Tabanou is likely thinking "Good riddance" while the Swans are thinking "Don't let the door hit you on the way out". It has been a disaster signing for the Jacks, as Tabanou made a total of three appearances for the club, not playing a single minute in league play. Attesting to his character, he must really have rubbed the club the wrong way considering how poorly Swansea's season has gone and the chances given to many other players in the squad who were not starters at the beginning of the season. The left back didn't help his case by complaining of his usage to the media. It is extremely likely he will be moved permanently in the summer, but for now, he can return to the open arms of St Etienne, who he helped to a spot in the Europa League as a regular last season. Neil Taylor is safely ingrained in the left back role with Kyle Naughton flexible enough to move over from the right should Taylor miss any time. Fri, Jan 22, 2016 01:23:00 AM
