Girona ‘very close’ to Muniesa

Girona are closing in on the signing of Stoke City defender Marc Muniesa and expect to complete a deal this week, say reports in Spain.

According to Diario Sport, the 25-year-old will become the 10th arrival at the newly-promoted Catalan club this summer although it is expected to be a loan deal rather than a permanent one.

The central defender joined the Potters in 2013 having made four appearances in Barcelona’s first team but has featured only 67 times across four seasons at the bet365 Stadium.

Muniesa’s exit has been hastened by the impending arrival of Bruno Martins Indi at Stoke and Sport says he has been spotted at Girona’s Estadi Montilivi this week.
