As you’re probably aware, Marc Roca has been shining at Real Betis this season after joining the Spanish side on loan from Leeds United.

The midfielder endured a difficult solitary year at Elland Road after joining from Bayern Munich which ultimately ended in them being relegated and him heading back to Spain on loan.

He’s been a key player for Manuel Pellegrini’s side since his arrival, constantly talking about how happy he is. That happiness is shared by everyone involved, at least according to Estadio Deportivo today.

They explain that the player has ‘found just what he was looking for’ with the Verdiblancos, while both Betis and Leeds are ‘happy with the operation’ so far.

That deal, at least according to Estadio’s information, includes a purchase option for the Spanish side worth €12m and a verbal agreement that Roca can join on loan again next season if Leeds fail to get back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

That €12m figure looks like being an absolute bargain for Betis, particularly if the midfielder caps off a ‘fantastic week’ by being called up to the Spain squad for the next international break. He’s currently in Luis de la Fuente’s pre-list thanks to his performances.

Should he be called up, it would provide the Leeds loanee with his ‘long-awaited debut’ and further increase his value, perhaps way beyond the €12m Betis currently have agreed. Such a figure for a Spain international would be a bargain and they’re more than aware of it.

The hope is that Leeds included some other clauses in the deal, specifically relating to international appearances, but if they do exist nobody has revealed as much as yet.

That may come to light further down the line, particularly if he does get in the Spain squad this week, and for now the focus is on how happy everyone is with how the loan deal is currently going.
