In the January transfer window, Wolves beat Real Madrid to the signing of Rafa Mir from Valencia.
The Spanish giants had been targeting Mir for their second team but were frustrated by their La Liga rivals.
Once the move was completed, Mir slammed Valencia for not making efforts to renew his contract and said he’d moved to go somewhere he’d be more trusted, adding: “They rejected three or four offers from Real Madrid for me; however, they agreed to the first from Wolves in December. Valencia did not want me to go to Madrid and they did it.”
Mir only managed a very small amount of Championship football for Wolves last season and it was expected he’d be eased into the picture after a full preseason with the club.
Well, the 21 year old has other ideas.
La Provincia newspaper is talking up a move to Las Palmas, who were relegated from Spain’s top tear last season. They’re not just pushing a rumour, but have spoken to Mir himself.
The Wolves player certainly wasn’t sitting on the fence: “I am attracted to the project that UD Las Palmas is designing, it is very attractive, who would not like to play in the Canary Islands? Of course I am attracted by the possibility.”
It’s reported a transfer is likely to be a loan deal, which could suit everyone involved.
