Deportivo La Coruna coach Miguel Angel Lotina revealed that the Spanish Club has opted to give up the chase for Mexico’s Carlos Vela and Giovani dos Santos.
Speaking to Deportivo’s official newspaper, the Spaniard confirmed that the club was interested in signing the midfielder and striker, both 21, but also added how the two players will not sign for Depor.
The Spaniard’s interest for Vela, who signed a new long-term contract with Arsenal last December, was confirmed by his agent – Eduardo Hernandez – last week with Hernandez, however, also adding how the Gunners don’t want to sell the player.
And, speaking to Arsenal TV Online last month, the striker did confirm how the reason why he enjoyed very little first team action last season was annoying injuries which he suffered throughout the season, adding how he will use the World Cup to show what he is capable of.
Both Vela and dos Santos are in action with Mexico’s National side in the 2010 World Cup Finals in South Africa. In their first game, “El Tri” could only manage a draw against the local favourites and will be back in action on Thursday when they face France in the evening.
On Monday, Lotina said:
The names were put on the table (as possible signings). But they won’t be coming.
