Second exit from the team during the winter window, Carles Gil has been transferred to New England Revolutions. The deal is reporting around €1.5 million to Depor.

Carles Gil has been transferred to New England Revolution; the deal was announced late on Wednesday as he was presented to the fans of the MLS club in Marbella (Spain). None of the clubs mentioned the details on the operation; the MSL club just wrote that they paid a fee for the player, while Deportivo announced that they have the right over future transfers. The media says the operation was around the €1.5 million.

Gil arrived to Deportivo ahead of the season 2016/17 and it was a loan from Aston Villa, the Valencian player had a hard time adapting with coaches Garitano and Pepe Mel, but ended the Primera campaign as a normal starter mainly performing as a right winger.

One season later the loan spell was extended for one year and, despite the relegation to Segunda, Depor were content with him and fulfilled a buyout option for €1.7 million. On the current campaign, he has been going in and out of the starting formations and completed 18 appearances without scoring a goal.

Precisely, his lack of goal is what coach Natxo González pointed during a recent press conference. The coach assured that it was the only one thing that the playmaker lacked in order to be considered as perfect for his team. In 52 league appearance for Los Blanquiazules he only scored once.

This is the second exit from the squad during the winter window. Previously, left back defender Gerard Valentín was loaned to CD Lugo. Also, centre-back Raúl Albentosa, who was loaned at Nástic Tarragona, rescinded his contract.
