Gálvez injury forces Rayo to seek defensive reinforcement
Rayo Vallecano are hoping to move for a central defensive reinforcement, after Álex Gálvez learned he will be sidelined for up to six weeks.
With one of the smallest budgets to work with in La Liga, even though they have recently exited their lengthy period of financial administration, Rayo Vallecano continually face a testing time when it comes to signing new recruits for their first-team.
Responsible for that unenviable task, is sporting director Filipe Miñambres, who must now search quickly for a central defender, amongst other potential reinforcements during the January transfer window. This, after learning that the linchpin at the back for Rayo, Álex Gálvez, has unfortunately suffered a thigh muscle tear. Current diagnosis is that this injury will keep the player out of action for between four and six weeks.
Amongst the targets already emerging, are Valencia’s recently signed Portuguese defender, Rúben Vezo, whilst Sporting Gijón’s Borja López has also been linked. In either case, Rayo will reportedly be looking at a loan deal, until the end of the season.
