The club expects to start discussing the coach for the new season at the end of next week, while Kranevitter and Tytoń are the new possible signings linked with Deportivo.

Tense days as Depor’s fans await to know the name of the new coach. President Tino Fernández was pretty clear about the deadlines when he was asked about the matter during a public act with the socios, "I don't think it will take place soon. The sporting direction is making a list and they won't end it before the start of next week. I believe the list should be ready at the end of next week, since that point we will start to talk. There's time in order to make the right things."

Paco Jémez is the preferred choice by the fans, but according to newspaper La Voz de Galicia it will be hard as advisor Richard Barral already had a meeting with him and the first contacts were negative, because the coach expects more money of what Depor can offer. It was reported that at Rayo Vallecano he was earning more than €2 million per season, an amount that Depor won’t match.

Other two names mentioned as possible candidates are the brothers Gaizka Garitano and Asier Garitano, the first is the former coach of SD Eibar that’s currently available, while the second is the coach is CD Leganés at Segunda División. The last name mentioned is ex-Depor goalie José Francisco Molina, who according to Radio Cadena Ser was interviewed by the club.

In the meantime, the club is still searching for reinforcements. After securing the arrival of winger/midfielder Emre Çolak, two names have been linked with Deportivo. The first is centre-midfielder Matías Kranevitter (23, Atlético Madrid) and the second is goalkeeper Przemysław Tytoń (29, VfB Stuttgart).

Argentine Kranevitter will go out loaned from Atlético, and according to Don Balón both RC Celta and Depor are targeting a move for him. In the case of Polish Tytoń, Marca reported that Depor are interesting in singing him for free after the relegation of Stuttgart in Germany.
