Real Betis could cancel Victor Camarasa’s loan deal at Crystal Palace with the midfielder still not in Roy Hodgson’s plans.
Camarasa joined the Eagles on a season-long loan deal in the summer transfer window after impressing at Cardiff City last year.
The deal included an option for Palace to make the move permanent for €13.5m next summer should it prove to be a success.
That has not happened, though, with Camarasa making just two appearances in all competitions and managing just five minutes of Premier League football to date.
It’s a less than ideal situation, particularly for Betis, who needed the midfielder to play 15 Premier League games for Crystal Palace this season before the release clause was activated.
As a result, Estadio Deportivo report they are now studying the possibility of ‘breaking’ the loan deal to get Camarasa back to the club so they can move him on permanently elsewhere.
This is something they would have to negotiate with Crystal Palace directly, as the current loan deal does not include a cancellation clause.
Whether Palace would be open to that is debatable, although it would presumably free up funds to use on a player they want, rather than Camarasa, who isn’t going to get his chance.
