On Tuesday, we covered claims from the media local to Real Oviedo about Rafa Mujica.
It was explained the young forward isn’t in the Spanish club’s plans, so they could look to send him back to Leeds United in the January window.
On his third loan away from Elland Road, after previous spells with Extremadura and Villarreal’s B side, the 22-year-old has only been given 34 minutes of LaLiga2 action so far this season.
Spanish newspaper Sport carry on the claims today, and they state it as fact that Oviedo want to send Mujica back. They need players to leave before they can bring in winter market signings, and the youngster is first on the list.
Sport state Oviedo are ‘already working’ on the return, but Leeds United’s stance is considered key. Mujica went on loan for the whole season, and the Whites have the right to reject his return.
That’s not thought to be likely, with Sport explaining an exit works out well for everyone, and that Mujica himself is keen to move somewhere he can feel important.
