Las Palmas reportedly have an ‘agreement’ in place to keep Leeds United forward Rafa Mujica at the club permanently this summer.
Th 22-year-old is currently on loan at the Secunda Division side, scoring once in five league appearances so far this season.
Mujica joined Leeds from Barcelona back in 2019, but has since had various loan spells on top of his current one, spending time at Extremadura, Villarreal B and Oviedo.

Mujica set for permanent Leeds exit
It now appears as though Mujica’s long-term future may lie away from Elland Road, with Marcelo Bielsa seemingly not considering him part of his first-team plans.
“There’s an agreement in which UD Las Palmas can extend the contract beyond June 30th. If his performance continues as it’s been going, he must continue here.”
Transfer Tavern take
It looks like an agreement that could suit all parties, with Mujica doing enough to justify staying on at Las Palmas and Leeds no doubt happy to let him move on.
Bielsa already has a host of attacking quality in his armoury, and as the Leeds boss looks to take his side to the next level and sign new players this summer, Mujica doesn’t represent the level of quality required.
