Ruben Castro contemplating future after China spell

November 7, 2017 Off By Sports Writer

Former Real Betis forward Ruben Castro is considering his future after ending the Chinese Super League season with Guizhou Hengfeng.

After calling time on his Betis career in July, Castro opted to join the Chinese side on a five month loan deal.

Helping them gain eighth place in the standings, the 36-year-old netted seven goals in 12 games with four of those coming in the league.

Linked with a return to La Liga with former club Betis, Castro is now said to be considering his immediate future as the January transfer window edges closer.

It has been reported that Castro does have a deal in principle to return to the Benito Villamarin on January 1st and for-fill a long term deal but that is yet to be fully confirmed by neither the player himself or the Spanish club.

During his career with Betis, Castro scored an impressive 135 goals in 250 games, winning the Pichichi on two occasions in 03/04 and 14/15.

Betis, who have started the season in good form currently sit eighth in the league standings.

Having fell to a 2-0 deficit at the weekend against Getafe, Quique Setien’s side battled back with goals from in-form front-man Antonio Sanabria and summer signing Ryad Boudebouz.
