Leeds United’s Rafa Mujica could still make a switch to Las Palmas in the January transfer window thanks to another striker making a move.
According to Macra, Italian striker Pietro Iemmello will terminate his contract with Las Palmas in order to move to Serie B side Frosinone.
This would free up the funds for the Spanish side to bring in Mujica, who is currently on loan with Real Oviedo.
Boss Pepe Mel stated, “So far, no one has left, and the president was already quite explicit: without exits, there will be no entries.
“It would not be coherent to sign anyone without anyone having left before. And less now with such an extensive squad and one game a week.”
The exit of Iemmello would open the door for Mujica to make his move to the club based in the Canary Islands.
Flop for Leeds
Mujica, 22, made the switch to Elland Road in 2019 on a free transfer from Barcelona B to some exctiement but it hasn’t worked out at all for the Spaniard.
He was unable to register a single senior appearance for Leeds or even one for the Under-23s.
He’s currently on loan to Real Oviedo, where he’s featured in four matches this season in the Spanish Segunda division. The attacker is yet to score or assist in four appearances, amounting to 71 minutes [WyScout].
A move to Las Palmas could relight the spark in what was touted to be a promising career upon his move to the Whites.
He has failed to score a single competitive goal in any competition since leaving Barcelona B and his next move will be crucial for his career.
Mujica is out of contract in the summer and he has no future at Leeds regardless of what he does in the next six months.
