Rafa Mir is only three weeks into his loan spell at SD Huesca, but he’s already enjoying his return to Spain. The 22-year-old is already leading the line on a regular basis and has scored two goals in three appearances this season.
Mir’s loan spell at Nottingham Forest was cut short after poor form and a lack of playing time, having failed to score in 13 appearances. It took him only two games at Huesca to get off the mark, however.
The Spanish u21 international made his debut in Huesca’s 1-1 draw with Real Oviedo (January 19), scored in their 2-1 win over CD Lugo (January 25) and bagged a second in their 3-1 defeat to Ponferradina (February 1).
Mir should start when Huesca travel to the Estadi Montilivi to face Girona on Saturday. The side are currently fourth in the Segunda Division with 43 points from 26 games. They could leapfrog third-placed Real Zaragoza and draw level on points with second-placed Almeria if results go their way over the weekend.
Mir will spend 18 months at Huesca and has the option to turn the move permanent. With only four appearances made at Wolves since his 2018-move from Valencia, it’s hard to see the 22-year-old having a future at Molineux.
