La Liga strugglers Granada keen on signing Wakaso on a permanent basis

Published on: 1 year ago

Newly appointed Granada coach Tony Adams says the club are keen on signing loan star Mubarak Wakaso on a permanent deal.

Wakaso, is on-loan at Granada from Greek giants Panathinaikos and has made 10 appearances for the struggling La Liga side who are battling relegation.

Adams in an interview after Sunday's 3-0 defeat to Celta Vigo said keeping Wakaso was a top priority.

"I don't expect the supporters to be happy with the situation," Adams said.

"I'm not, the owners aren't, but it's important for us to keep fighting, try everything we can to get results in the short term and to stay in La Liga.

"Longer term obviously we need to build a football club, but that's going to take a little bit longer. Hopefully, the supporters will understand.

"I met them yesterday, they're completely aware of the situation.

"I told the supporters that we've already got [Rene] Krhin signed, Wakaso we're trying to do in the next couple of weeks, Ingason is signed to the club, [Matthieu] Saunier is signed to the club, whatever division we're in. We've got some very good players."

Granada are second from the bottom on the Spanish La Liga table.
