Deadline Day: Manchester City youngster back from loan in Spain, loaned to Spain

Angelino stays in Spain!

It hasn't been a very busy deadline day for Manchester City, but some young players are on the move.

The 20-year-old fullback has his loan spell at Girona canceled after just one month. Angeliño didn't a single second of playing time and was out of the bench for almost every game since joining the second division side in Spain, unlike the other City loanee at the club, Pablo Maffeo, who's enjoying some starts and good minutes.

Angeliño will try his luck again in the second division, this time at Mallorca. Pep Guardiola has big plans for the young Spaniard and wants him to get regular minutes until the end of the season, so he can return to the club in the summer a more experienced player.

With three first team appearances this season (two in the League Cup, one in the Champions League), Angeliño is likely to have some good involvement in the team next season, since all the fullbacks are probably leaving the club and Guardiola will use both Angeliño and Maffeo as backups to the new players coming in to play the position in the summer.

Good luck, Angeliño! Please play this time.

UPDATE: Here's Angeliño with his new club's shirt. Hopefully he'll put it on and play.
