Official: Liverpool Confirm Aspas Loan

Julian Finney

Despite reports it had been agreed as far back as last week, it took until today for Liverpool to confirm the loan of Iago Aspas to Sevilla. Hopefully the move will allow him to revive his career.

The only thing surprising about Liverpool's official confirmation of Iago Aspas' loan to Sevilla is that the club took until today to make it. Sevilla confirmed they had agreed a loan with an option to buy the striker and sign him to a three-year deal a full week ago. News of him passing his medical at the Spanish club came three days ago.

Liverpool, though, hadn't rubber stamped the move by posting about it on the club's official website. So, for anybody still waiting for that before saying goodbye to Aspas, today they have. The striker, who arrived from Celta Vigo last summer for £7M, heads back to Spain for at least the next season and perhaps for longer.

Despite conflicting rumours, there is no reliable confirmation of the details of the purchase option Sevilla have on the player. Some fans have speculated that the Spanish side are required to buy Aspas at the end of the season, but what is more likely—though nothing is confirmed at this point—is a permanent deal that triggers after a certain number of appearances.

Hopefully, whatever the specifics of Aspas' purchase option, he does well enough at Sevilla to stay beyond this season and can revive his career after moving to England derailed it.
