Jesús Vallejo could be on his way out of Wolverhampton Wanderers in January after struggling for playing time while on loan from Real Madrid. The 22-year-old was meant to spend the season at Molineux and gain valuable experience before returning to the Santiago Bernabeu, but he’s been short of opportunities and could find his loan deal cut short as a result.
Vallejo has made seven appearances in all competitions this season, racking up 612 minutes of football. The Spanish u21 international hasn’t featured for Wolves since October 30’s EFL Cup defeat to Aston Villa and hasn’t featured in the Premier League for more than a month. His last top-flight outfit came in Wolves’ 1-1 draw with Southampton (October 19).
Vallejo has been left out of the matchday squad on eight occasions and been an unused substitute eight times too. He finds himself behind Willy Boly, Conor Coady, Ryan Bennett and Max Kilman in the pecking order under Nuno Espirito Santo, so it might benefit both parties for him to move on when the winter transfer window opens.
Should Wolverhampton Wanderers cancel Jesus Vallejo's loan?
Wolves have been linked with a move for Robin Koch of SC Freiburg, so they may have already lined up a replacement.
