Southampton

Carrillo's Leganes return hits snag

16th July 2019, 11:54 by Neil Foster

Guido Carrillo's possible loan return to Leganes has hit the buffers as Southampton want a permanent deal, reports claim.

The 28-year-old moved to St Mary's from Monaco in the summer of 2017 for a fee thought to be in the region of £19m but has failed to hit the heights with Saints.

The striker made just 10 appearances in all competitions during his first season and failed to score before being sent out on loan to Leganes for 2018-2019.

Six goals from 32 La Liga outings followed and it seems as if Los Pepineros boss Mauricio Pellegrino - Saints manager between June 2017 and March 2018 - is keen for another season working with the Argentinian.

However, AS are reporting that the Spanish club are only interested in a loan deal, but Southampton want to make it permanent and are keen to recoup as much of their initial outlay as possible.

It is open to debate as to whether Leganes would pay £19m for the player and there seems to be an impasse at present.

With Che Adams now on board, it appears inevitable that Carrillo will be moving on although there is work to be done on the deal.
