Two exits, two promotions and only one signing; it’s the result of Depor’s moves during the winter market. Four of these five operations were made on deadline day.

It was a busy and disappointing deadline day for Deportivo. The most recent results provoked panic at the club and the officials decided to make the moves in the winter window during the last hours. Five operations were made, all of them in the last week, and four on deadline day.

The first operation was announced on Wednesday it was the signing of Raí Nascimento de Oliveira. The Brazilian winger signed a contract for the reminder of the season with the option of an extension and he already debuted in the game against Unionistas.

Then all the remaining moves were made on deadline day. The first operation announced in the day was the exit of Diego Rolán. President Fernando Vidal had already announced that his wages were unpayable for Deportivo, and early in the morning the club announced that he has been loaned to Egyptian club Pyramids FC. The deal lasts until the end of the season.

Radio Cadena Cope reported that the deal includes a buyout option. The president had announced that the Uruguayan striker was going to extend his contract with Depor (lasting until 2022), but the club didn’t inform anything about this extension.

Later in the afternoon, Radio Cadena Cope was reporting that Diego Villares was going to be promoted on a permanent basis to the first team. The multi-functional midfielder is 24 and cannot alternate between the first team and Fabril due to his age, so the club decided to promote him, and he got the shirt number of Rolán.

The frustration came within the last hour. Depor chose striker Sergio Moreno as the replacement of Rolán. The 22-year-old striker belongs to Rayo Vallecano and is currently playing loaned at CD Mirandés (2 goals in 18 Segunda games), but the deal collapsed at the last minute and the solution of the club was to promote a second player from Fabril.

And that player is Rayco Rodriguez, the left winger is 24 and is arrived from CD Lugo B (Polvorín CF) during the summer. He has been one of the most electric players at the team coached by Valerón and the club decided to promote him in order to take advantage of his skills. 

The squad for the remaining of the season 2020/21:
Goalkeepers: Carlos Abad (1) & Lucho García (13)
Defenders: Jorge Valín (2), Mujaid Sadick (3), Eneko Bóveda (5), Héctor Hernández (17), Derik Osede (18), Borja Granero (19) & Salva Ruiz (21).
