According to a report from Spanish outlet AS, Leeds United youngster Rafa Mujica is waiting for a move to Las Palmas.
Las Palmas are in for the midfielder but have left Mujica waiting, as they try to get their finances in a row.
Miguel Angel Ramirez, Las Palmas President, suggested last week that players have to leave if he is to bring in reinforcements, and that is likely delaying Mujica’s move.
AS said yesterday that Pietro Iemmello was on the verge of ending his season-long loan early and that could be the catalyst for the Mujica move to happen.
The 22-year-old’s loan spell at Real Oviedo was cut short this month, and Mujica is out of contract in the summer, so a permanent move away may be on the cards.
Victor Orta’s decision to bring in Mujica in 2019 was an interesting one, but the move hasn’t worked out for either party.
The midfielder arrived with promise having come through the ranks at Barcelona but he has made zero impact.
Early signs of concern began to show in Mujica’s loan spell at Extramudera in 2019/20, where he played just eight times.
A return of four goals in seven games for Villareal B in Spain’s third tier showed signs of promise in the second half of last season, but it seems he isn’t cut out to play any higher.
This season he again failed to assert himself in the Spanish second division for Real Oviedo, featuring in five games, and it is time he left on a permanent basis.
The Spaniard’s contract at the club expires in the summer and his future at Elland Road is non-existant.
