Iago Aspas set for La Liga return?

Liverpool striker Iago Aspas could be set for a return to Spanish football after struggling to make an impact at Anfield.

According to the Mirror, the 26-year-old is wanted by Valencia and is set to join Los Che on loan during the January transfer window after not featuring for Brendan Rodgers’ side since early October.

Aspas switched to the Premier League before the start of this season when he was signed from Celta Vigo in a controversial deal worth €8.2m, the player being accused of breaking his contract and forcing the move.

After New Year he must travel to Madrid to give evidence in the case and is facing a fine of up to €5m, whilst he is also resigned to returning to Spain on a more permanent basis to get some playing time as he looks to get his career back on track.
