Diego Fabbrini has been recalled from his Loan at Millwall by parent club Watford.

The 24-year-old has been immediately loaned back out, joining Birmingham City until the end of the season.

During his time in SE16, the popular Italian made 12 appearances for the Lions, scoring his only goal for the club against Sheffield Wednesday.

Fabbrini now joins Gary Rowett's Birmingham City side for the final seven games of the campaign.

Birmingham currently sit 15th in the Championship table.

    Don't really understand Watfords thinking behind this.... Unless the blue sh!te are guaranteeing him a starting place every week!

      @TheBermondseyBomber:

      That will be exactly what they are thinking. how he does not get in our team is beyond me. I know Chopper will have his own style but I think we need the likes of Fabrinni in home games. He may not be what we need for away games with outer back against the wall but I'm shocked

        @Ash: though I think he's a good player, he doesn't figure in our squad for next season as we'll never buy him. So for me it's better he goes and we play one of our own

        @Ash: hope it does not mean that we will not have any real - quality players at the Den,next season.If it does,the 'gates' will drop even further,will only have the 'Die-Hards'(who actually attend matches and the 'Posters' who have all the excuses for not attending,paying attention to MFC results.but it seems that's what the people in charge want!( NOLU, WDC).

      @TheBermondseyBomber: they obviously want to sell him and now know we won't ne able to afford him from league 1. So moved him to a club who might buy.

      @JordieLion: He was a loanee. He is also beyond our budget and we probably couldn't nail him anyway. Freeing up a place for another young and/or contracted player to gain experience for next seaons is what good management does. Good decision.

      Not got much to say to Watford if they can take him back when they wanted. The world of the loan market is lost on some. You'll be asking for Fred back now no doubt

    Good player no doubt bit I always felt he was in a team that wasn't functioning and he looked good but didn't really impact the team performance. He isn't good enough defensively to play in a 442 formation so makes sense for him to move on.

    Didn't fit in with Harris style of play couldn't see him getting a game but would be handy to hav players like him keeping the others on there toes. Maybe there was a clause saying he had to play a certain number of games who's knows.

    Too little impact on games IMO. We were never going to sign him, whatever division we're in. I'd rather go with Fred and Maggy; still think handled right, Maggy could be good for us.

    Watford want to sell him, and they believe we are down so will not be able to afford, also I reckon he's had a moan up about not being played, very skilful player & would have liked to see him again in a wall shirt, but can understands bombers thinking, it's showing trust & belief in youth, and if we do manage to stay up will be genius, I posted ages ago that he'll have to make some tough choices, looks like he's making them, fair play bomber I hope it works for you saan, but if not, at least you tried

        @jim1222: yeah I totally agree mate, our decent performance's will hopefully do enough to keep Dunne out, it's nelson for me all day long, Dunne's a ball chaser and always seem to get dragged out of position to many times

    Harris wants players who would be with them next season and what watford want for him it's the best thing for Fabbrini ,watford and Brum, no doubt Fab would be peed to find he's not playing but playing elsewhere will raise his stock, Millwall won't be complaining, I doubt to be honest.

    I have said before I think Chopper is playing players who could be with us next year probably in league one. Fabbrini would never play in that league and with the wages on offer. If I am right it will be interesting to see if the Hoover keeps getting picked as I would think he is in the same sort of situation. Thanks Fab for the memories good feet and clever but a bit of a luxury in our posistion, when there was not really a good final ball, enjoyed watching him play though.

    I agree that Fabrini is a very skilful player, by far the most we had but, IMO he slows the game down. Against Brentford we were quick in the attach/counter attack, unfortunately Fab holds onto the ball too long. I can see why he has gone.

    Definitely a good player but not the right player for a club who needed steely characters who could fight their way out of trouble. As UpTHeWall says, he slowed the game down when we needed a more direct approach. A good example of the poor judgement shown by Holloway. We needed a beast in midfield, not Twinkletoes.

    I really don't think he was our best player. Yes, it was nice seeing him beat a player or two (or three) but he didn't have an end product, held the ball for too long, and opposing defenders found him out by half time so he ended up running in circles or needlessly losing it.However, there's no doubt he's incredibly talented and I'm sad to see him go. Especially since the alternatives are woolford or Martin

      So who in the current team has end product if Fabrinni doesn't? Genuine question.

    How many of you guys on here (I include myself in this too) moan when Forde, Williams or any of the back 4 hold on to the ball for way too long and end up giving it away in our own half week in week out...Fabrinni was no different.

    I'm pleased he's gone as he was never going to stay long term and was looking to promote himself so some other team with money would come in and buy him.

    Talented yes but as previous posters mention, he really didn't have the end product someone of his ability should have and was incredibly frustrating to watch and I ask you all this, how many points did his goal/assists lead to? I'll give you the answer - 0.

    I hope he can make the premier league someday and it works out well for him but I trust Neil Harris and this is best for us moving forward.

    I think the HOFF and BEEVERS if played could still help Wall stay up - fact.
    We have three home games coming up and we need goals play three up front
    O Brian Greggs and the HOFF three midfield JIMMY UPPY AND BUNGY WILLIAMS.
    CUMMINGS, HOOO, BEEVERS AND HARDING. GO FOR IT.
    GOALIE FORDE I SUPPOSE. Playing the youngsters won't keep us up - it is still possible to stay up if results went our way.
    Hope Bomber and Livers read this the most sensible thread on here so far. Plenty of likes please.

    I'm not bothered to see him go at all. For me , he played like a dog chasing it's tail. No end product. Done far too much diving too.
    No loss at all.
