Cameroon international James-Edward Manfred Léa Siliki has left English Championship side Middlesbrough following at end to a dissapointing loan spell.
Multiple sources are reporting that the Cameroon international is one of three loanees manager Chris Wilder has elected to allow them return to their parent club following what can be described as a failed experiment.
“We thank them all. From the loan players’ point of view it maybe hasn’t worked out as they’d have liked. It’s been a difficult period for us on that one,” Wilder said while taking stock and making recommendations about the players he had on loan.
Having joined from French Ligue 1 side Stade Rennes with the expectations of getting game time at the Riverside, Lea barely played and towards the end of the forgettable stint he was restricted to training and playing for the Boro feeder team.
The 25-year old Cameroon international only played 11 championship matches during his loan spell and in the final weeks, he featured twice for the reserves.
Lea will return to his parent club Stade Rennes to take their instruction on the way forward.
The Former French international which switched allegiance to Cameroon last year was a part of the Cameroon team that won bronze at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations tournament on home soil.
Lea counts 11 caps for the Indomitable Lions but is still running after his first goal for the multiple African Champions.
