Wolverhampton Wanderers confirm that Rafa Mir has left to join SD Huesca on loan until the end of next season and has a buying option attached to his deal. The 22-year-old cut his loan spell short at Nottingham Forest after struggling for form and playing time, having failed to score in 13 appearances, but he’s already found himself a new club until June.

Mir is taking a step down, however, with Huesca in the Spanish Segunda Division, but he needed to join a side willing to give him regular football. Playing against second-tier opposition might help him recapture some form too.

The Spanish u21 international joined Wolves from Valencia in January 2018 and has embarked upon a series of loan moves after struggling in his debut season – UD Las Palmas (July 23, 2018 – June 30, 2019), Forest (July 30, 2019 – January 13, 2020), Huesca (January 14 – present).

Mir’s last career goal came in Las Palmas’ 1-1 draw with Real Oviedo (April 2016). He’s fired blanks for Wolves and Forest, however, which has knocked his confidence. With the Midlands outfit loaning him out despite their lack of attackers, it’s clear Nuno Espirito Santo doesn’t believe he’s good enough.
