Coke set for La Liga return

Former Sevilla captain Coke is set to return to La Liga in January after being frozen out at Schalke, according to reports in Spain.

The 30-year-old joined the Bundesliga side in the summer of 2016 in a €5m deal but suffer a cruciate ligament injury the following week, ruling him out until April.

Despite a run in the side towards the end of last season, he has featured only once in the league this season – as a substitute- as the club’s 3-5-2 formation does not accommodate him.

Estadio Deportivo now report that both Alaves and Levante are ‘extremely keen’ in his signature, and a move back to Spain in January is ‘almost certain’.
