Having completed his long-awaited return from injury, French Ligue 1 club Nice will be banking on Jean Michaël Seri to come to their rescue.

Last season's surprise package have struggled for form this season and currently occupy 17th spot in France's top-flight. The club, who topped the standings for a large part of the previous campaign, now hovering but a point above the relegation zone.

Seri, who came on as a second half substitute in a 1-1 draw against SM Caen, played a starring role for the club last season.

Seven goals and nine assists in 39 appearances resulting in strong reported interest from Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona.

But, the Ivory Coast international is yet to replicate that sort of form this season as Nice struggle at the wrong end of the log standings. The 26-year-old midfielder's last goal coming at the start of October.

Having committed his immediate future to Nice, the club's faithful will now be hoping that he can spark an upturn in results.
