‘Las Palmas, bring back Jese!’

Las Palmas Coach Paco Jemez has instructed his board ‘to do everything in their power’ to bring forward Jese Rodriguez back to the club.

The 24-year-old spent the second half of last season at his hometown club on a loan deal from Paris Saint-Germain, before joining Stoke City on a season-long arrangement in August.

However, the former Real Madrid player has scored only once and featured just nine times for the struggling Potters, who may agree to cut short his spell at the club.

“I have told the president to do everything in his power to bring him back,” Jemez told Cadena Ser, as cited by El Mundo Deportivo.

“I have no doubts about Jese and I would take him here tomorrow, but he must come to the club as a motivated player and aware of his situation.

“I want Jese to be in the first in at training, to be an example and to lead others, he must show his maturity to help him develop.

“He has been moving clubs frequently and needs a home, and I believe if he comes back here we will find his best form.”
