Wolves striker Rafa Mir has said that his agents are ‘working on’ resolving his future at the end of his loan spell.
Speaking to Marca, the 23-year-old said that he wanted to ‘continue growing as a footballer’ and hoped to find the ‘best place’ to do that. He added that there is a ‘decision to make’ this summer but acknowledges that it’s not entirely up to him.
Mir’s stock grows on loan in Spain
Mir spent the season at Huesca in the Spanish top flight and managed to score 13 league goals. That left him joint-eighth in La Liga’s top scorers list, level with Barcelona’s Antoine Griezmann.
What’s more, he accomplished that feat for a side who ended up getting relegated, but he considerably underperformed on his expected goal tally of 16.5 (via Infogol).
Could Lage offer Mir a lifeline?
Mir has only made four appearances for Wolves’ senior side, each of them in the 2017/18 season when they were a Championship club.
Fan feed Talking Wolves relayed his comments, and here’s how some supporters reacted.
