I get the desire from fans to see him play, given we have Tom Davies and Gylfi Sigurdsson actually starting games and with Allan still out.
But in all honesty... I'd be amazed if ever played for us again in any serious way. Perhaps a few minutes at the tail end of the season to put him in the shop window but I expect him to move back to France in the summer to rebuild his career, maybe on loan, and then after that he has a minor chance of playing for us in 2022/23, but contractually speaking you'd think we'd look to move him on for a fee at that point.
Hope I'm wrong of course but that amount of time out at a key stage of development for a footballer at his age... I just can't see him playing at the level and intensity needed for this league now.
