Rafa Mújica has had four loan spells since he joined Leeds United in the summer of 2019.

In the winter market, the Whites cut short his temporary stay at Real Oviedo and allowed him to return to UD Las Palmas on a loan deal.

Their president has earlier confirmed having an option to make the striker’s stay permanent this summer.

La Provincia state the ‘negotiations are at a standstill’ for the Segunda División club to retain Mújica, Jesé, Eric Curbelo and Edu Espiau.

Las Palmas president Miguel Ángel Ramírez assured the club want to undertake operations to retain the aforementioned players, but things aren’t easy.

The club ‘trust that most of the negotiations can come to fruition’, even though talks have stopped. These players are currently on vacation and sources from Las Palmas assured La Provincia that no development can be expected anytime soon.

Regarding Mújica, the news outlet explain Las Palmas have ‘not even contacted’ Marcelo Bielsa’s side to extend the player’s stay. This shows there’s no rush from the Spanish club’s part to have the Leeds man’s as one of their strikers next season.

Mújica managed to score one goal in 13 LaLiga2 appearance for Las Palmas in the second half of last season.
