Albentosa, Juanfran and Diego Rolan can change club during the winter window. These three operations could be the only ones made by Deportivo in this market.

Sporting director Carmelo del Pozo has stated that Deportivo will only make signings during the winter window if someone leaves first or if an interesting operation shows up, a view that was also shared by president Tino Fernández. But the situation is different with the loaned players.

And it’s that the most expensive loanees aren’t playing and therefore they could change to another club during the winter window, more specifically there are three cases: Raúl Albentosa, Juanfran Moreno and Diego Rolan.

The situation with Albentosa is the most curious one, because he is playing (11 games this season) and Nástic is content with him despite some defensive errors and despite he already scored three own goals (he also scored twice). But it seems that it’s more the initiative of Deportivo.

Carmelo Del Pozo stated after the game at Cádiz CF that, “There’s the chance to cancel the deal for a loanee if there’s the opportunity to make an operation.” He didn’t mention the name, but the media is certain that he was talking of the Valencian centre-back. The media in Catalonia speculate that Depor has received an offer to transfer the player and the Galician club is ready to accept it.

The cases with Juanfran and Rolan are simpler as they are just lacking opportunities at CD Leganés. Juanfran begun the season as a starter, but lately coach Mauricio Pellegrino has preferred to play with Allan Nyom at the right side of the defence; thus Juanfran has only played as a starter in one of the last six games, and it was for the visit to Celta as Nyom was suspended (December 14).

The case with Rolan is worse, the striker  has barely played and remain scoreless with the Primera season about to reach the mid-point. The Uruguayan hasn’t find a slot in a scheme with two strikers an has only played 204 minutes distributed in five games. Between November and December h only played 85 minutes in the 0-1 win at Rayo Vallecano (December 4).

So, the moves would be made in order to protect the market value of the players and to seize an opportunity in the case of Albentosa. Thus Deportivo cold end making more operations with the players that are currently outside the club than with the ones currently working with Natxo González.
