Malaga expect Darder stay

Malaga general manager Vicente Casado says he expects Sergi Darder to stay at the club after confirming the midfielder will not be joining Lyon.

The 21-year-old had been linked with the French giants over the past week, with personal terms reportedly agreed, but he is now likely to spend another season at La Romareda following Casado’s latest comments.

“The player will not join Lyon,” he was quoted as saying by AS.

“We’re convinced that Sergi will soon be 100 percent committed to Malaga, both physically and emotionally, because he’s a great professional and person.

“I don’t want to discuss speculation as it’s not worth denying anything.

“We finally find ourselves in a very exciting situation as a club, with the beautiful challenge of another season in the best League in the world.”
