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!”
