The long-rumoured - and for many fans, long-hoped for - return of Faissal El Bakhtaoui to Dunfermline was completed today when the striker signed a year-long loan deal from Dundee. Now entering the final year of his contract at Dens Park, Faissal is back at the club where he belongs - a great example of a player fitting a particular club. For whatever reason, his move to Dundee did not work out as planned, despite scoring the 2016/17 Premiership goal of the season against Celtic. He was often played as a wide attacker rather than his favoured central role, a case of not utilising the player properly.
I am delighted Faissal has returned to our club - this is a genuinely exciting signing and will be a huge boost to the club's hopes this season and also for the many fans who worshipped him in his first spell in the black and white.
Welcome back, Fais!
