Soumaïla Coulibaly

After his proposed transfer to Burnley collapsed at the final stage, Soumaïla Coulibaly decided to join Belgian side Royal Antwerp on loan last summer. The talented centre-back gained some valuable experience and playing time in Belgium, starting in all six of Antwerp's Champions League group stage matches.

The 20 year old showed a decent account of himself and formed a solid partnership in defence with veteran centre-back Toby Alderweireld. But an injury suffered in January, combined with the impressive rise of Zeno Van Den Bosch, meant that Coulibaly had to spend the second half of the season on the bench.

Coulibaly is unlikely to have a future at Borussia Dortmund, and will need to look for a new club this summer if Royal Antwerp decide against making his loan move permanent.
