Kebano had only played five times for Fulham all season, but was introduced for the final 20 minutes of Sunday's 2-1 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur.
But what did those of a Sheffield Wednesday persuasion make of the 26-year-old's cameo, and how might it affect the Owls' chances of a deal?
This is what they're saying on Twitter...
Won't be coming now— ian chambers82 (@IChambers82) 20 January 2019
He's on now, reminds me of Antonio n Josimar— Gary (@Gazmix2) 20 January 2019
Doesn't sound hopeful if that's the case... What happened to the Swedish centre back we were in for????— RicardoMINGE (@Richardmongo200) 20 January 2019
He came on and didn’t have much of an impact tbh— Craig1973 (@craighay) 20 January 2019
At this level hes very good— Mark,Pitsmoor Owl (@Markmoorhouse2) 20 January 2019
Watched him today... Hope we don't go for him. He was hopeless— John Hawksworth (@hawksworth62) 20 January 2019
I think it's a smoke screen. Why would he play today and risk injury when a loan is on the table. I don't think we 're going to sign anyone unless someone leaves and that's not until deadline day usually then gives us no time to do anything— RicardoMINGE (@Richardmongo200) 20 January 2019
When asked about his side's interest in Kebano at a press conference on Friday, the Sheffield Wednesday interim manager, Steve Agnew, refused to give too much away.
He did, however, add that a player with the DR Congo international's attributes would be a welcome addition to the squad at Hillsborough.
"The one thing I would say is that for a team to attack and hurt the opposition and create more chances then yeah, I think any pace in any team frightens defenders," he explained via the club's official website.
"If there is an injection of pace somewhere in the team at some point then I’m sure it will make us a better team."
Kebano, who scored twice for Fulham against Sheffield Wednesday two seasons ago, would be cup-tied for the Owls' trip to Chelsea on Sunday, should he sign before then.
