Jonathan Pereira joins Valladolid on loan until end of season
The arrangement between Villarreal and the player will be extended for a further season if ‘Los Maños’ gain promotion.
Jonathan Pereira will spend the rest of the season on loan at Real Valladolid. The Galician striker joins the Blanquivioletas after rescinding his loan contract with Rayo Vallecano, to boost a forward line dogged by injury problems. Pereira, a former international at youth level with Spain, can play as an out-and-out centre-forward or in any of the three, deep-lying forward positions.
The loan deal includes a clause which would allow the player to extend his stay until June 2016 should Valladolid get promoted back to the Liga BBVA this season. The team is currently fourth in the table just four points behind leaders, UD Las Palmas. Valladolid will officially unveil Pereira in the press room at the José Zorilla stadium on Friday at 13:15 hours.
