Girona FC sporting director Quique Cárcel has confirmed that the Catalan club are set to sign Olarenwaju ‘Larry’ Kayode on loan from Manchester City, with the 24-year-old Nigeria striker already training behind closed doors with his new teammates.
City have signed Kayode from Austria Wien, for whom he was the Austrian league’s top scorer last season, although have yet to formally confirm the transfer despite the many reports of a deal being struck.
Cárcel told the Spanish press on Wednesday, “We have received permission from his club to let him start to get to know the group and understand how we work.”
A few bureaucratic issues are holding up the loan deal from being confirmed, but it could all be done as soon as Thursday.
Kayode could make his Girona debut against Atletico Madrid on Saturday and will become the fifth loanee from Man City after Pablo Maffeo, Aleix Garcia, Douglas Luiz and Marlos Moreno.
