Pulido in his new gear

On Friday both Atlético Madrid and Rayo Vallecano announced the temporary transfer of Jorge Pulido to the Franjirrojos.

The canterano will join our neighbours until the end of the season.

Puli is highly rated and Atleti made sure not to include an option to purchase the 20-year-old in the loan deal.

This season Pulido has only featured in the Copa del Rey and the club decided it’s best if the centre back finds playing time elsewhere. At Rayo he will join fellow Atleti loanee Diego Costa.

Pulido took to Twitter to announce the news.

“I’m going on loan to Rayo until the end of the season. I will give my best and I hope to feel like a football player again after half a season [for Rayo].

Thanks to all the Atlético fans for your best wishes. And now, let’s beat Athletic!”

  • falcao

    this is oportunity for him to show what he knows…

  • dgsozkan

    he has a great potential to be a star defender. That’s a good chance for him. I hope he would find enough minutes to show himself and prove that we are right about him

  • Javi Lozoya

    Just hope he gets plenty of minutes because he is very promising since he was with the youths teams of Atleti and the Spain youth teams so he definitely is talented for sure but needs playing time to fulfill his potential.

  • 7th

    has he played today vs athletics?

  • dgsozkan

    I’ve just check but unfortunately neither Pulido nor Costa played last match. They weren’t even in the match squad. Yet, they’ve just joined to team it’s understandable.

  • alberto perea was on the bench for rayo and he was a former atleti youth product, unfortunately he didnt play.
