Arriving from Barcelona’s B team on a free, Rafa Müjica was always going to be one for the future at Leeds United.

The Elland Road hierarchy wasted no time to send him out on loan, first to Extremadura, followed by a spell with Villarreal B.

This year, however, they decided to try out Real Oviedo in hope he’d get some decent minutes to help his progress, but that hasn’t really worked out.

The 22-year-old has only made four very brief appearances for the club, and there’s been talk of him returning to Leeds this window.

This is reiterated by El Desmarque on Thursday, who claim Mújica is among the loanees who ‘could put an end to their passage through the Carlos Tartiere before the end of the market’.

Furthermore, the Leeds player ‘has told the club his intention to leave, although this has not yet materialised’.

It seems more and more likely that Mújica will be returning to Marcelo Bielsa’s squad, but whether he stays there is a whole different matter.
