According to Mundo Deportivo, Jesus Vallejo will leave Wolverhampton Wanderers in January as Real Madrid are planning to recall the 22-year-old. Vallejo has struggled for playing time during his loan spell at Molineux and will be brought back to Madrid to be loaned out elsewhere.
Should Wolverhampton Wanderers cancel Jesus Vallejo's loan?
Mundo Deportivo say the central defender has plenty of interest from clubs in Spain and Germany, so Vallejo could be getting more regular playing time during the second half of the season. He’s made only seven appearances for Wolves, the last of which came in their EFL Cup defeat over Aston Villa (October 30).
In Wolves’ last 10 league games, Vallejo has been an unused substitute six times and left out of the matchday squad on four occasions. He’s found himself behind Romain Saiss, Leander Dendoncker, Conor Coady, Ryan Bennett and Max Kilman in the centre-back pecking order.
Vallejo has amassed more minutes of playing time in the EFL Cup than Premier League, so Nuno Espirito Santo is unlikely to stand in his way of an early departure in January. Real won’t be happy to see one of their players stagnating while Wolves don’t need another outcast on the books.
