Arsenal have triggered their recall option in midfielder Jon Toral’s loan deal with Granada, but he is expected to move again.
The 21-year-old, who impressed with Birmingham last season, joined the La Liga side at the start of this campaign but is now going to the Emirates.
‘Arsenal Football Club has decided to activate the option they had in the winter to recover Jon Toral, who maintained a link with the Granada CF assignment.’ Granada said in an official statement.
‘In this way, the player ceases to belong to Granada from today and undertakes a new football challenge.’
‘Granada CF wants to wish the best of luck to a player who always defended with absolute professionalism our shield and that was the author of a beautiful goal against Osasuna in Copa del Rey this season.’
The decision to recall Toral is said to be because he will now join Rangers in another short-term deal until the end of the season.
