Rayo Vallecano have apparently propositioned Palermo with a one year loan deal for playmaker Franco Vazquez.

Rayo won their opening La Liga fixture 1-0 against Granada on Sunday but new boss Paco Jemez remains intent on adding to his squad to insulate the Vallecas club from the threat of relegation.

Vazquez, a creative attacking midfielder, hails from the same city as former Palermo playmaker Javier Pastore but has struggled to live up to his legacy since signing for the Sicilians last January.

According to AS Rayo have approached the Italians with the idea of taking the 23-year-old – nicknamed 'El Mudo' – on loan for the duration for the 2012-13 campaign.
