Jese joins Las Palmas on loan from Paris Saint-Germain

The 23-year-old has been unable to earn a place as a regular starter in Paris since joining from Real Madrid, and has joined his home side

Las Palmas have secured the services of Jese Rodriguez from Paris Saint-Germain on a loan deal until the end of the season.

The attacker had also been linked with Liverpool, Middlesbrough and Roma in recent weeks, but he has opted to continue his career at Las Palmas instead.

The 23-year-old only joined PSG from Real Madrid during the close season but he failed to live up to the high expectations at the Parc des Princes.

Jese – who was born on Las Palmas – made just nine Ligue 1 appearances for the champions in the first half of the season, scoring once in the process.

He last featured for the capital side in their 3-1 Coupe de la Ligue win over Lille on December 14, but the club say his desire to return was key in the deal being completed.

“Jese Rodríguez will play at UD Las Palmas until June 30, 2016,” their website read. “The player’s wish to wear the yellow jersey has been fundamental to the closure of the agreement with Paris Saint-Germain.

“The desire of the player from Gran Canaria has prevailed over the interest of other Italian and English teams who were willing to pay Paris Saint-Germain big money for him.

“The medical examination will be held at the Hospital Perpetuo Socorro at 13:30 and at 18:00, he will be presented as new player of UD Las Palmas at the Gran Canaria Stadium… he will wear the No.10.”

The arrival of Julian Draxler, Goncalo Guedes and Giovani Lo Celso this month meant the former Spain Under-21 star was unlikely to get much playing time in the remainder of the season and he will now be looking to get his career back on track in his city of birth.
