Serra heads to Eibar on loan
Valencia last night confirmed striker Janni Serra would be heading to join Segunda division Eibar on loan for the coming season. The German striker joined the Spanish side back in October 2020, making the move from Holstein Kiel for a reported fee of around £800k, but was limited to just 2 substitute appearances for the senior team, instead being used in the Mestalla squad in the Segunda B. He impressed at that level, scoring 10 times from 16 starts, leading to interest from several clubs higher up looking to secure the former Dortmund man’s services for the coming season.
Among the clubs interested, alongside La Liga sides, newly relegated Eibar, who finished 19th in La Liga last season, were keen to bring in the 23 year old striker to partner up with Kike and Enrich, the former enjoying a fine season despite relegation as he found the net 20 times in 36 games. With 31 year old Sergi Enrich transfer listed at his own request, although the club hope to keep hold of him Serra will give them more options and a ready made replacement should he depart, as they look to secure a return to La Liga at the first time of asking under former Alavés manager Asier Garitano.Share this:
