Sergio Asenjo: Joins Villarreal on loan with view to permanent deal

Atletico won the race to sign the highly-rated Asenjo from Real Valladolid in 2009 but he has found opportunities limited at the Vicente Calderon, where David de Gea and Thibaut Courtois have been first-choice goalkeepers during his time at the club.

The 24-year-old, who suffered a serious knee injury while at Atletico, spent the 2010/11 season on loan at Malaga and he is now heading to El Madrigal for a similar stint with promoted Villarreal.

A statement on Villarreal's website read: "Villarreal, subject to the signing of the contract, have reached an agreement with Atletico Madrid for goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo, who will play on loan for the 2013/14 season at the Yellow Submarine. Also, Villarreal, have the option to buy the goalkeeper at the end of the loan period."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
