Jorge Mere is reportedly heading to Malaga as the Spain Under-21 defender prepares to bid Sporting Gijon farewell.
According to Marca, Mere will announce his desire to leave Sporting at a Press conference on Sunday as a result of their relegation, with a move to Malaga close.
The 20-year-old made 61 appearances for the Asturians’ first team, 56 of which came in La Liga over the last two seasons.
