Great return on him!
Bradford Park Avenue have announced the loan signing of Real Madrid wonderkid Marcos Llorente on a loan deal until the end of the season.
With the arrival of Carabina and departure of Kim Myung-Hoon, Avenue agree their second signing of the transfer window with the Spaniard's temporary arrival at The Shay.
Bradford will only have to pay 20% (£1,200) of his £6,000 contract which is paid at the Santiago Bernabeu of the midfielders' wages for the duration of his loan in West Yorkshire.
Although only 24 years old, he will celebrate his 25th birthday in England with his new teammates as well as family who will fly over to Leeds-Bradford Airport days before, as confirmed by the man himself.
Valued at £10,500,000 by the 11-time winners of the UEFA Champions League, a permanent deal for the Real Madrid player was out of the question for the Championship club, who currently lie in second place after a 4-1 win over Sunderland at the weekend.
Adam Chabukiani has commented on his new loan signing to the press today:
I'm delighted to bring Mr Llorente to the club today. I am happy to be able to say that we and Real Madrid's officials were professional and great people to work with in regards to this transfer. Marcos is the kind of player that we need here to take us further up the table and he will be straight into my starting eleven for the upcoming game.
My only regret with this transfer is that it isn't a permanent deal because to possess a player of Marcos' calibre is a luxury no doubt, as he seems a great young lad and a terrific player.
Llorente joins the club for the next six months as Bradford Park Avenue chase promotion the top-flight of English football.
