As Arsenal confirm the signing of Dani Ceballos, another Spain Under-21 European champion is set to vacate the Bernabéu on loan imminently.
Like Ceballos, Jesús Vallejo is heading for the Premier League, where he will join Wolverhampton Wanderers. But before he departs, the 22-year-old defender is set to so sign an extension to his current deal at Real Madrid, which expires in 2021. It is expected that the player’s loan move will be confirmed in the next few days, as well as his penning of a new deal at the Bernabéu. With the offer of a new contract, Madrid have demonstrated to the player that they see him as part of the club’s long-term plans. But a short-term loan deal will allow him to gain valuable experience and game time in England, where he will hope to shine as he had previously done in the Bundesliga with Eintracht Frankfurt.
