The Frenchman appears to be a welcome departure.
The Frenchman arrived from Les Verts in the summer but has failed to make a significant impact at the club since making the switch.
The left-back played just three times for the club, all in the cup, and now looks to be on his way pout of the Liberty Stadium.
Because whilst the deal is only a loan agreement he has had a pop at the club since making the move, telling L'Equipe:
“I had gone to Swansea to get to the next level, to get my foot in the Premier League and to then go higher,” Tabanou said. “Unfortunately, it didn’t happen the way I wanted. They did not give me my chance. I do not understand.
“And I think, if I had stayed, my situation wouldn’t have changed. The club is in a terrible situation and despite that, they never let me play.
“Tactically, they are not at the top. They have their players, they will fight until the last minute. This is not the way I play.
“I might have been able to make more effort but I also expect an effort from them.”
With Tabanou gone it has certainly caused a stir among the Swansea fans. He was one of the best performers in Ligue 1 last season in his position but seemed to never get a real chance to shine in South Wales - despite their struggles in the Premier League.
His performance against Oxford United in the recent FA Cup win might not have helped his case for an extended Swansea stay. Meanwhile fans have not been keen about his weight in recent weeks.
But his failure at the club still looks something of a mystery.
Here is how Swansea fans reacted to his departure on Twitter...

Frank Tabanou on #Swans: "they have their players, they will fight til the last minute. This is not the way I play." Good to know, Frank.— UnderTheCoshBlog (@under_thecosh) January 21, 2016
Franck Tabanou has to be one of the most delusional men to ever represent Swansea City. Good riddance!— Steven Carroll (@StevenSOS1987) January 21, 2016
Bye Tabanou, it was nice seeing you play twice— Jack (@JxckSalter) January 10, 2016
Funny how no-one has said Tabanou is better than Taylor now he's gone back to France.— Matthew Phillips (@matt_the_jack) January 21, 2016
Tabanou didn't take his chance, he's gone fat so he should go back to France— Nathan Randel (@NathanRandel1) January 10, 2016
Tabanou ! actions speak louder than words! And as you proved you don't have the ability to play at elite premier league level! In fact..— Ricki saunders (@RicksterTheJack) January 21, 2016
I have to agree with #Tabanou to a certain degree, although he did look pretty average against Oxford in the cup!— Rob John (@RobJohn0) January 21, 2016
Tabanou has cost Swansea almost £16,000 a minute so far. I recall a decent 30-second patch against Oxford last weekend...— Riath Al-Samarrai (@riathalsam) January 15, 2016
