Celta: Guidetti wanted by Alaves

Celta Vigo have confirmed John Guidetti will leave the club in the coming days with Alaves favourite to sign the striker.

Celta’s sporting director Felipe Minambres has confirmed the Swedish international, who has struggled for game time this season, looks set to leave Estadio Balaidos this month.

“John’s exit is close to completion,” Minambres is quoted as saying by Faro de Vigo.

“This is a situation that he had asked for but we can handle this deal and we understand the player’s situation, he wants to be involved in the World Cup and to have regular playing times.

“We have been talking to Alaves for a while about such a deal but I cannot confirm anything about his destination.

“We also cannot confirm about any new signings as this market can be a bit crazy, especially in January.

“We are happy with the squad but we always look to improve.”
