Caicedo to swap Espanyol for Girona

Striker Felipe Caicedo looks set to leave Espanyol for newly promoted Girona, who are in ‘advanced negotiations’ for the Ecuadorian.

The 28-year-old has found playing opportunities at the RCDE Stadium increasingly limited and the return of Sergio Garcia and permanent signing of Leo Bapistao appear to have pushed him out further.

Marca report a deal is ‘all but done’ and despite no confirmation in the report, it is likely this will be a loan deal with an option-to-buy rather than a permanent move, which was Espanyol’s preference.

Having had spells at Manchester City, Malaga, Sporting CP, Basel, Lokomotiv Moscow and Levante only netted twice in 27 league appearances for Espanyol last season.
