Roque Mesa optimistic on Sevilla stay

Roque Mesa hopes Sevilla make his loan move from Swansea City permanent at the end of the current campaign.

The 28-year-old has started all three matches under interim Coach Joaquin Caparros having not started in a La Liga match under previous Coach Vincenzo Montella, while it is thought Sevilla have an option to make his loan move permanent.

“I’ve always said it, my desire is to stay at Sevilla,” Mesa told El Desmarque.

“My family like it here and I want to remain at the club, but ultimately it is the decision of the club at the end of the season, but they know what I want.

“A month ago things may have looked different but with the changes the outlook for me looks better, and this is what I always wanted.

“They know what I want and I know that football can be tough but it is fair, and I hope that my hard work is rewarded.

“My move to Swansea? Everything happens for a reason and I do not regret everything, this is what happened and it is the path I went down.

“I have to accept it because football puts you where you deserve to be.”

Mesa joined Swansea in a club record £11m fee from Las Palmas last season, but struggled to adapt to the English Premier League and the Swans have since suffered relegation.
