It’s being reported this week that manager Marcelo Bielsa will instruct Victor Orta to return for speculated summer target Ibai Gomez when the January transfer window opens.

Reports in Spain have claimed that we are ready to reopen negotiations with Deportivo Alaves for the 28year-old winger despite seeing our earlier offers rebuffed.

Aiding our cause might be the fact he is reportedly out of contract come the end of the season and if a new deal was going to be signed, you’d assume it would’ve been sorted by now – so maybe a reunion with Bielsa is possibly on the cards as they were together at Athletico Bilbao.

With strong league experience in La Liga as well as Europa League experience, you can certainly see the potential attraction to him as a capture.

Fans who took to social media to react to the claims certainly seemed impressed with his calibre and how he could improve the overall group.
