Eibar to stick with transfer plan

La Liga

Sporting director Fran Garagarza insists Eibar will still look to sign two new players in January despite their recent upturn in form.

The Basque outfit had previously revealed that a new central defender a midfielder were top priority looking ahead to next month as they struggled in the lower reaches of La Liga.

However, Eibar have turned things around with three successive wins to see them sitting 13th in the standings and they are seven points clear of third-bottom Las Palmas.

But suggestions that their transfer plans could be altered in January have been rebuffed by Garagarza as Eibar have been linked to Tenerife defender Jorge Saenz and Real Sociedad midfielder Ruben Pardo.

He said: “If you think we’re moving on the feelings of the last three weeks, we’d have to be thrown out. We’ve had a good run but it’s not making us change course.”
