On Tuesday, AS reported UD Las Palmas are ‘probing’ the return of Leeds United’s Rafa Mújica in the winter market.
The Whites forward is currently on loan at Real Oviedo and has not started in the league for the second division Spanish side this season.
According to La Voz de Asturias, Real Oviedo and Mújica’s representative are ‘working on his departure’ in the ongoing window.
Udlaspalmas.net have relayed AS’s report and they also provide their own information on this case.
It’s claimed the sporting leaders of Las Palmas will work to sign the Leeds man as soon as possible, but that will be done after Pietro Iemmello’s loan deal is cut short.
The website states ‘contacts already exist’ for the 22-year-old to return to his former club on a loan deal this month.
Grada3 also has an update on the Leeds owned player and they start by explaining the possibility of the Spaniard leaving Real Oviedo in January has been known for weeks.
Until the last few days, it was believed Mújica would arrive at CD Numancia and the attacker’s approval was the only thing missing to conclude the operation.
As per the report, he delayed it because the former Barcelona academy graduate was waiting for a Segunda División team.
Grada3 report Las Palmas interest and the new development will only make it difficult for Numancia to sign the Leeds attacker.
It’s explained Iemmello’s departure from the club is the ‘only thing that separates’ Mújica’s return to Las Palmas on a loan deal.
To sum it up, Mújica’s agent has started work to take his client away from Real Oviedo and Las Palmas can conclude the operation to sign Marcelo Bielsa’s man once they cut ties with Iemmello.
