Granada complete late double signing

Granada complete late double signing

February 2, 2018 Off By Sports Writer

Granada have completed loan deals for Benfica winger Salvador Agra and Celta Vigo midfielder Andrew Hjulsager, the club has confirmed.

The Andalusian club are desperate to bounce back and return to La Liga, but they currently sit eighth – outside the play off places.

The arrival of both Agra and Hjulsager will provide a boost to their midfield and attacking options with both expected to feature this coming weekend against Tenerife.

Former Brondby midfielder man Hjulsager arrives from Galician side Celta, having made just nine appearances for the La Liga club, two of which came this season.

Agra, formerly of Benfica spent the first half of the season on loan with Portuguese minnows Aves, impressing enough to catch the eye of Granada scouts.

Jose Luis Oltra’s side will be looking to bounce back this weekend after losing 3-0 to relegation battlers Barcelona B last time out at the Catalan side’s Mini-Estadi.

A win for Oltra’s men would see them put pressure on the promotion chasing teams and could see them move up to fifth place on level points with Lugo.

League leaders Huesca have a six points lead over second place Cadiz and are firm favourites to gain promotion to Spanish football’s top flight.
