Ex-Fulham target Youssouf Sabaly says he has moved on from the disappointment of his failed £12million move from Bordeaux this winter.

The Cottagers activated the release clause of the 25-year-old full-back, but received no reply from Bordeaux on deadline day.

The deal collapsed despite Sabaly completing a successful medical and repeated efforts by Fulham to make contact with the French club over a four-hour period.

In an interview with Sud-Ouest newspaper, Sabaly admits he doesn’t know what the future holds for him with Bordeaux having him under contract for another two years.

‘I missed my departure this winter – I do not need to go into details, I did not want to speak on this subject.

‘The transfer window has passed, I moved on to something else.

Football goes very fast, you have to adapt, you know the environment, you have to look forward, I know how to do things, I always try to be as professional as possible.

‘When there are opportunities, you have to seize them, it has not happened, you do not go back over the past.

‘I only think to finish the season well – I will know more at the end of the season.’
