Portuguese club Sporting CP want to end their loan deal for Paris Saint-Germain forward Jese Rodriguez, report Diario Sport.
The Spaniard has played on four occasions for the club – starting twice – but is yet to score and the side reportedly have no plans to extend his deal and indeed want to cut it short.
Jese spent the second half of last season on loan at Real Betis but they decided not to make the move permanent – reportedly due to the player’s annual wage bill of €3m.
The former Real Madrid player joined Los Verdiblancos on a long deal until the end of the season in January but netted just two goals in 18 appearances for the club.
The 25-year-old’s career has badly stalled since joining the Parisian club in 2016 from Real Madrid, as he barely played before loan spells at Las Palmas and Stoke City.
However, despite holding a reported €9m option to sign him permanently, Betis held little interest in a deal and he eventually moved to Portugal on the final day of the summer transfer window.
