DONE DEAL: Huesca swoop for Wolves striker Rafa Mir

SD Huesca have swooped for Wolves striker Rafa Mir.

Mir has joined Spanish second tier outfit SD Huesca on an 18-month loan deal after his stint with Nottingham Forest was cut short.

The Spanish under-21 international goalscorer has spent the last six months at the City Ground but will now move to Huesca until the summer of 2021.

Mir first joined Wolves back in January 2018 from Valencia where he was handed the number nine shirt, but last season, the 22-year-old had a successful loan spell with UD Las Palmas in Spain's Segunda Division.

During a season back in his homeland in 2018/19, Mir made 30 appearances in a Palmas shirt, scoring seven times – his first coming in just his third game for the team, recording the equaliser in a 1-1 draw with Real Zaragoza.

After being part of the Spain under-21 side which lifted the European Under-21 Championships in the summer, Mir joined Forest on loan, making 13 appearances in all competitions.
