Earlier this month, Real Oviedo sporting director Francesc Arnau admitted the decision to cut short Rafa Mújica’s loan deal doesn’t depend only on them since the player is owned by Leeds United.

Arnau even stated the Spanish side are waiting for the Whites to take a decision on the striker.

There seems to be a new development on this front if a report from La Nueva España is to be believed. Their title states ‘Mújica, very close to leaving Oviedo’.

He started in only one match in all competitions for Real Oviedo and that came in a Copa del Rey clash against CD Coria last month.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side are interested in Mújica having a greater role, and hence, they support the idea of the attacker changing clubs in the winter market.

UD Las Palmas have been been credited with interest the 22-year-old. La Nueva España state that if ‘nothing goes wrong’, Las Palmas could be his next destination and the deal could be ‘closed later today’.

The report, however, points out the frontman is managing offers from other Segunda División sides and also from abroad. From the lower divisions, Marbella, Nástic and Hércules have been interested in the Leeds man.

What’s certain is Mújica will leave Real Oviedo, but it remains to be seen where he will end up in the ongoing window.
