Spanish Eagle II: Jesús Vallejo on Loan at Eintracht
SGE signed Spanish top talent Jesús Vallejo on a one-year loan deal from Real Madrid.
19-year old Vallejo is currently Under-21 international and previously ran through the Spanish national youth teams from the Under-16 onwards. Last year he captained the Under-19 at the EURO in Greece.
Born in Zaragoza he joined Real Zaragoza in his youth and had his debut in Spain's Segunda División in 2014/15 (30 league appearances, 1 goal). Real Madrid signed the talent in 2015/16 and loaned him straight back to Zaragoza (20 league games).
Sporting Director Bruno Hübner: „Jesús Vallejo is a young and highly talented central defender who has a long term contract at Real Madrid. We are glad to have him signed on loan - having the central defense staffed is crucial going into the season."
Jesús Vallejo: "Of course I am excited to get to know everyone and I am working on getting a part of the team as soon as possible. I want to support the side as good as I can."
