12. Jean-Michael Seri (Nice – Fulham)
If Andre-Frank Zambo Anguisse represents money thrown away for no good reason, then Seri is just sheer disappointment for Fulham fans. The Ivorian’s capture was regarded as a massive coup by the Cottagers. He had been linked with the likes of Liverpool, Spurs and even Barcelona before moving to London.
While there were signs of his class, he was playing for one of the worst sides in English first division history and clearly lost motivation about a quarter of the way through the season.
