Championship play-off semi-finalists Fulham may look to loan in Oostende forward Cyriac again next season, according to Belgian media outlet Het Nieuwsblad (via Sport Witness).

The 26-year-old spent the second half of last season at Craven Cottage having fallen down the pecking order at parent club Oostende, yet he didn’t increase his gametime much under Slavisa Jokanovic as the Cottagers pushed for promotion to the Premier League.

The Ivory Coast international failed to start a single Championship game last term, instead earning ten substitute appearances and netting the one goal in their 2-2 draw with Blackburn back on March 14.

Nonetheless, recent reports suggest that the London outfit may look to bring Cyriac back to Craven Cottage next term, with it clear that he is out-of-favour at Oostende and likely again seeking first team football.

And, given his record at the Belgian top-flight club prior to moving to Fulham, it’s clear that he’s a forward with much potential, having bagged 21 goals and laid on six assists in just 58 games for Oostende, and with decent goal-scoring spells at Anderlecht and Standard Liege prior to his 2015 move to Oostende, the striking sensation could be a shrewd acquisition for Jokanovic’s Cottagers.

Fulham fans may be slightly concerned about a potential deal given the minimal effect Cyriac made on the side last time round, but with the Championship club looking for a sustained promotion push once again next term, having a talented individual like Cyriac in the squad can only be beneficial.
