Villarreal prioritse N’Diaye exit

According to Marca, the 27-year-old is the only player who the Yellow Submarine are hopeful of moving on from their first-team squad this summer.

The former Sunderland midfielder made 13 appearances for Villarreal last season but was signed by Marcelino Garcia Toral and the manager’s replacement Fran Escriba did not see him as part of his plans.
