Jawad El Yamiq will join La Liga club Real Valladolid, according to Marca.

The Moroccan center-back, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Real Zaragoza from Serie A outfit Genoa, will reinforce Sergio González’s squad after the departure of defender Mohammed Salisu to Southampton.

The injury of Kiko Olivas and the most recently Joaquín Fernández has accelerated the negotiation between the two clubs. It will be Valladolid’s sixth signing (Fabián Orellana, Shon Weissman, Bruno González, Roberto Jiménez and Luis Pérez), of the current transfer window. The signing could become official today, as the player is currently in Valladolid.
