Girona seemingly forgot about January’s window, signing one player

Girona signed just one player this January, bringing in left-back Raul Garcia from Leganes.

The Catalan side have had a good season thus far and are hoping to push on from their successful campaign last term.

In doing so, keeping hold of their key players is a big priority and they have done that this month – keeping holding of Cristhian Stuani, who was linked with a move to rivals Barcelona.

Barca turned their attentions elsewhere after being rebuffed and a move for Kevin-Prince Boateng saw Stuani’s chances of moving to the Camp Nou fall short.

In fairness the Uruguayan striker never tried to force the move and Girona will be thankful of that, keeping his goalscoring exploits at the club.

For Girona boss Eusebio Sacristain ahead of the rest of this season, he will now make do with his current squad – having one extra option, Garcia.

The 29-year-old defender began his career with Deportivo La Coruna – having spells with Almeria, Alaves and formerly – Leganes.

Little is known about whether or not Garcia will become a regular for the five month deal he has at the club – but his failings to break into the side at Leganes this term give you an idea that he could be nothing more than a back up.
