Left-back Saúl García will play loaned at Girona FC during the season 2016/17. The Cantabrian will perform at Segunda División as he did in the last part of the previous season.

The club announced on Saturday that Saúl García will play loaned at Girona FC ahead of the season 2016/17. Coach Garitano wanted to see the 21-year-old left-back going out in order to gain more experience, something that will be possible at this Catalan club, team that has been close to achieve the promotion to the elite in recent seasons.

Saúl García arrived to Depor for the season 2015/16; despite barely playing in the first part of the campaign, it was a positive year for the 21-year-old player. He was loaned to CD Tenerife during the winter window after only playing in Copa with Depor, the Canarians lived at mid-table all season long, without approaching to the promotion seats, but neither menaced by relegation.

It was a good move for the left-back after not having any action at Deportivo, because he played in 20 of the 23 games disputed by Tenerife since his arrival. Saul was solid in defence, but missed accuracy with his crosses (only 14 of his 67 crosses met the target -21% of the total-) Still, the media praised his performance and the intention of the club was to extend the loan for next season, but Deportivo wanted him back.

Saúl is the ninth player under contract that leaves Depor during the summer. Pablo Insua (Leganés), Juan Dominguez (Mallorca), Oriol Riera (Osasuna), Róber (Levante) and Bicho (Racing de Ferrol) were loaned, Miguel Cardoso and Luis Fernández rescinded their contracts, while Manuel Pablo retired.
