Real Madrid's Andriy Lunin wants Leganes stay

Goalkeeper Andriy Lunin has no intention of returning to parent club Real Madrid in January despite his understudy role at Leganes, say reports.

The Ukrainian shot-stopper has started just one La Liga game at Butarque this season and has failed to dislodge the club’s first choice goalkeeper Ivan Cuellar.

A report in Diario AS claims Madrid want him to return to the Bernabeu in January as they fear a departure of Keylor Navas in the January transfer window, leaving Kiko Casilla as the back-up to Thibaut Courtois.

However, the report also claims Lunin – who joined Madrid in the summer from Zorya – has no intention of cutting short his loan deal.

He is said to have a strong working relationship with Lega goalkeeping coach Joseba Ituarte and would prefer to fight for an attainable first-team place.
