One thing that is worth mentioning is that he’s very much a left-winger, having played here during each and every one of his 36 appearances for Celta Vigo last season.
Does this mean he’s an alternative to Kenedy should a deal for the Brazilian fail to materialise? You’d think so as we couldn’t afford both..
