Gracia says Okaka's future lies out of his hands, despite being impressed by the burly centre-forward.
“I think he is looking for other clubs. That's all I can say," Gracia said. “Stefano Okaka, for me, is a very good person and a good player. I don't know the situation and it doesn't depend on me.
“I'm waiting to see what will happen with Okaka. I don't know if he'll move or stay. We will see what will happen."
“I know we are in 11th position and that is too close. We have to work hard and win games. The last game against Stoke is a good point.
“We could have had three, but that is ok. We have to play in the Premier League and it is such a competitive, aggressive league. I don't care that it is so close, it is not a problem."
