Juanmi passes La Real medical

Southampton’s former Malaga striker Juanmi has reportedly passed a medical ahead of a move to Real Sociedad.

AS reports the procedure took place throughout Tuesday and with no problems detected, the Basque club are expected to announce Juanmi’s arrival on a five-year deal in the very near future.

La Real will pay arounds €4m up front for the forward with more to come depending on bonuses and other variables, though there remains a minor wrinkle relating to Juanmi’s contract with the Saints that has to be addressed before the move is official.

But La Real are ready to announce the deal as soon as possible, Juanmi returning to La Liga after a year in England that saw the 23-year-old make 19 appearances without scoring.
