Coke rejects Zaragoza loan offer

Sevilla defender Coke has turned down the chance to join Real Zaragoza on loan, reports Diario de Sevilla.

Coke, in his second season with the Andalusians following a €1.8m move from Rayo Vallecano, will instead fight for the right-back spot at the Sanchez Pizjuan with recent signing Cicinho.

Zaragoza boss Manolo Jimenez is still looking to supplement his wafer-thin squad before the close of the transfer market and was hopeful of persuading the Madrid-born player to move to La Romareda.

However, Coke is reluctant to give up the opportunity of a place in Michel’s starting line-up and will attempt to convince the Sevilla boss he is worthy of a spot.

“We have received an offer for a player who featured in a lot of games for us last year, one I would say was a first-team regular.

“We have informed Coke but he has told us he prefers to continue here. Therefore, he is still one of us,” said Michel.
