Espanyol sporting director Ramon Planes insists there will be no more sales this month.

Espanyol have cashed in on Victor Ruiz (Napoli) and Didac Vila (AC Milan) in recent days.

"Let's hope there are no more surprises, like we had with Didac," Planes said.

"That was a very quick operation and Milan showed a lot of interest in signing him, but we want to leave the squad as it is now."

Planes said the two homegrown players were allowed to leave to aid the club's financial situation and has asked fans to understand that predicament.

"I know there are people who may be hurt, but people need to understand the situations and the circumstances," he said.
