Deportivo is already fulfilling its first reinforcement for the season 2009/2010, and is a familiar face: Z? Castro. The Portuguese defender is currently loaned from Atletico Madrid and Depor Sport published on Wednesday that the club is ready to fulfill the two million buyout option over the player. Then the defender will sign a contract until the year 2013. To emphasise that Depor will only have the 50% of the rights, because the other half belongs to a private company.

On Wednesday, the player talked with reporters and showed his satisfaction with the news though he assured he still has to decide where he will play on the next season, ?I am very tranquil. Everything related to be playing must be faced in a normal way. Day after day, I try to do my best. Right now I am content on here, I’m thankful for the bet they have made with me. I can only say I am really satisfied with what’s happening on here. There’s a deadline to see Depor fulfilling the clause, and that depends on the club. When they finally fulfill it, they will tell me, because in the end I have the last word, it’s my decision.?

Meanwhile, Jonathan Pereira still calling the attention of the media. On Wednesday, his agent, Javier Picallo, admitted the interest of Depor tough, as he said to newspaper La Opini??n A Coru?a, he expects to join Villarreal on the next season ?Now we are certain about the interest of Deportivo, but above all, we think of Villarreal. To start talking with other club, Villarreal will have to give its approval. It’s too soon to talk about the future of Jonathan, but the player will have to low its level to see Villarreal not counting with him for next season, they see him as a future player for the first squad.?

Despite his words, Picallo left an open door for Depor, ?He won’t have a problem to play for Depor, he is from Vigo and in A Coru?a he will be near to his home, that’s an advantage for him, because he has a strong relationship wit his land. No matter what, we will have time to talk about his future.?

Coach Miguel Angel Lotina talked on Wednesday after the training of the first squad, he was asked about Pereira and his response was: ?He is an important player, besides he’s Galician and that’s fine, he has said he would love to play on here. I believe he will be an important player at Primera, we will have to wait for the end of the season.?

An interesting name that has came out is Hern??n Arsenio P?rez Gonz??lez (20). This young Paraguayan talent was praised by the South American media due to his brilliant performance during the last U-20 championship. He’s a right winger that could be the replacement for Lafita. Radio Galega, through its program Caneando, informed on Wednesday that Deportivo already is negotiating for him. He belongs to Club Libertad (currently playing in Copa Libertadores 2009) and has been informed that he possess an EU-passport. Rumours say his cost is around €3 million.

A thing to have in mind were the words of Lotina, during Wednesday, talking about transfers, ?We are looking for players at all the positions, we are getting information about several players, and if we can, we will like to bring Spanish people. I also want to bring to the president some name as Guardado, someone from whom we could bet and that won’t cost too much, later this player can be revalorized.? The coach said at Abegondo’s press room

Depor is also thinking in brining back some of the loaned players at other clubs, on the same press conference Lotina assured that Aythami and Adrian will return for the next season, ?For our logic, Adri??n and Aythami should return in order to be at the first team, for their youth and also because they have grown. Ribera and I want to watch them live, this in order to start advancing things for next season.?

Finally, Galician Sportpaper Deporte Campe??n wrote on Wednesday that Depor is interested in two players currently at Villarreal B: Joan Tom??s Campasol (23) and Gerard Bord??s (27). The first one is a striker that already scored 11 goals on the season (Segunda B, group III). The second is a right winger that has scored nine goals with Villarreal B.
