Kakuta in line for Depor debut

Gael Kakuta is free to make his Deportivo La Coruna debut against Eibar on Saturday after finally being given international clearance to travel.

Kakuta completed his six-month loan to Depor from Hebei China Fortune little under a fortnight ago, but red tape prevented him from making his bow in last weekend’s 1-1 draw with Las Palmas.

It now remains to be seen whether Coach Gaizka Garitano feels the attacking midfielder is in a position to play, given the Chinese season ended a month ago.

Fellow new boy, Anderlecht-owned goalkeeper Davy Roef, has also been called up for the trip to Eibar as Depor look to end a run of five straight draws.
