Villarreal After Sporting Gijon Youngster Jose Angel - Report

The young defender could leave Sporting Gijon for Villarreal this summer...
Ambitious Primera Division outfit Villarreal are considering making a move for young Sporting Gijon defender Jose Angel in the summer transfer window, if a report on Cadena Ser is to be believed.

The Yellow Submarine appeared vulnerable at the back last season and they're eager to add some more depth to their defence this summer. Jose Angel is reportedly one of their primary transfer targets.

The promising youngster made his official Sporting Gijon debut in 2008-'09 and has so far made 26 league appearances for the La Liga side. He has also been capped at under-21 level for Spain.

Jose Angel has an ongoing contract with Gijon, but Sporting could be tempted to cash in on the 20-year-old if a good offer comes in. The report suggests that both sides are already in advanced negotiations.
