Nuno Espírito Santo has admitted Wolverhampton Wanderers’ decision to sign Jesús Vallejo on loan from Real Madrid hasn’t worked out well, and the defender’s transfer is set to be cut short in the winter market.
On December 31st, we carried a report from Marca, who explained the 23-year-old is not short of options as he has offers from Spain and Germany.
VfL Wolfsburg are one of the Bundesliga clubs interested in signing the player and their managing director, Jörg Schmadtke didn’t deny his side’s interest in Vallejo when questioned last week.
Mundo Deportivo now claims Leganés are looking to sign the defender in January. The Catalan newspaper are of the belief a move to the La Liga side would assure him regular minutes in the second half of the season.
It’s claimed that from Real Madrid’s perspective, Vallejo would be at ‘home’ if he joins Leganés on a temporary deal. In addition to this, it can also boost his chances of making it to the Spain squad for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Mundo adds Vallejo’s move to Leganés will be a ‘win-win’ for all parties involved, including Wolves.
