Official: Jonathan Viera loaned to Rayo Vallecano
Well, that was unexpected. Three days from the closing of the transfer window and two days before an important encounter against Barcelona, and a talented player is given away. I never imagined the player would want to leave and I didn't think the club would let him leave.
The player apparently seeks more playing time and thus switched clubs in the last few days. Rayo Vallecano has been interested in him for a while and took their chance. The deal is a one-year loan with no purchase option (thank goodness) for an undisclosed fee. Rayo Vallecano will take care of the player's wages for the year. I wish him all the best and hope this move will serve only to make him a better player.
Feel free to let us know what you think :)
