Leeds United seeks to sell Rafa Mujica in the January transfer market, according to TEAMtalk reports.
The 22-year-old striker, who has not yet been part of Leeds’ first team, joined Real Oviedo of the Spanish second division on loan for one season.
He has not yet made his debut in competition with Oviedo, but Mujica’s agent is in talks about a permanent move.
The report also claims that Las Palmas is also interested in securing Mujica’s services, while Numancia has also been credited with an interest.
Leeds signed him for three years, but it seems that the whites are looking to get rid of him. He hasn’t had a fair chance at Leeds, and it looks like his time at the Yorkshire club will end before it actually begins.
SL View: Should Leeds add new players in January?
If journalists well connected to Leeds like Phil Hay, Graham Smyth and Adam Pope are to be believed, the whites are unlikely to sign any players in January.
Marcelo Bielsa is happy with the squad he has and does not want to make new hires this month.
Leeds, however, can look at two key areas to strengthen their squad. With Robin Koch out of the game for a long period, Leeds may look to bring in a new center-back.
In addition, the whites could look to sign a forward. Patrick Bamford, who has been in excellent shape this season, is the club’s first-choice striker, while Rodrigo, the summer transfer with a lot of money, has been used primarily in the attacking midfield areas.
