Real Betis captain Joaquin is hopeful in-demand star Dani Ceballos will decide to stay at the club for at least another season.
Like Ceballos, Joaquin emerged through the Betis youth system and spent six years in the first team at Los Verdiblancos before joining Valencia aged 26, and is advising the 20-year-old to similarly wait.
"I am advising you (Ceballos) as a teammate, friend and as a veteran,” Joaquin told ABC de Sevilla.
“This is very important for us and we would like you to stay with us for many more years.
“Of course the decision is his, what he must do is the best for him but also for Betis. I hope we can continue to enjoy him and for him to stay here.
"Dani can play in any team. He has many different talent, he is young and has many years of glory ahead of him.
“Any team would want him but hopefully we can enjoy him here for at least another year."
Ceballos is the subject of intense interest from both Real Madrid and Barcelona this summer, but may chose to stay at Estadio Benito Villamarin.
