Roque Mesa is currently on loan at Sevilla from Swansea City and the midfielder has expressed his desire to continue at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán next season.
Paul Clement signed the 28-year-old from Las Palmas last summer and he made 11 appearances in the Premier League. The former Real Madrid and Bayern Munich assistant manager was sacked from his position as the Welsh club’s manager in December 2017 and Swansea replaced him with Carlos Carvalhal the same month.
Mesa wasn’t included in Carvalhal’s plans at the Liberty Stadium and he allowed the Canary Islander to join Sevilla on loan in January. The Spanish club have an option of signing the player on a permanent deal and Mesa is determined to leave Swansea in the summer transfer window.
“I hope to be able to continue at Sevilla,” Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo quotes Mesa as saying.
Mesa has struggled for playing time at Sevilla, making only six appearances in the La Liga. However, he has featured thrice under Joaquin Caparros, since the latter’s appointment as caretaker manager on 28th April.
“I’ve been told he [Caparros] trusts me and for that, I thank him very much. I am very happy and I’m going to try to enjoy it,” he added.
Swansea City can now expect Sevilla to try and get the cost down as low as possible, regardless of what has already been agreed, or even try for another loan.
