Rayo Vallecano new boy Iago Falque is facing up to two months on the sidelines with a torn adductor muscle, the Primera Division club have announced on their website.

The 22-year-old attacking midfielder, who recently joined Rayo on a season-long loan from Barclays Premier League club Tottenham, was replaced after just five minutes of Friday night's 2-1 home defeat to Levante after suffering the injury and subsequent tests have revealed the extent of the problem.

According to a Rayo statement, Falque could be out for between "six to eight weeks", ruling him out of a tough-looking run of fixtures that sees them face Malaga, Barcelona, Sevilla, Valencia and Real Sociedad in their next five matches.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
