Exclusive: Ex-Valencia B coach Torres warns Wolves against selling Rafa Mir

Wolves should think twice about selling loanee Rafa Mir, his former coach Curro Torres has told Tribalfootball.com.

The Spanish forward spent time at Barcelona and Murcia as a youth before landing at Valencia.

It was under the tutelage of Torres at Valencia B where Mir started to show his true potential.

Playing in the Segunda B Division in Spain, the Murcia native scored 25 goals in 60 appearances.

Mir won his first-team debut in 2015 after catching the eye of Nuno Espirito Santo, who eventually brought the 6 ft 3 in striker to Wolves in January 2018.

Las Palmas took Mir on loan for the 2018/19 season and the Spain U21 International thrived, scoring seven goals in 30 games.

A spell at Nottingham Forest didn't produce the same return, but Mir has found his feet again with La Liga outfit Huesca, having scored eight goals in 28 games.

And according to his former coach Torres, a two-time La Liga winner with Valencia, Wolves should should have 'doubts' about selling Mir.

He told Tribalfootball.com: "Rafa Mir is a really good footballer who has grown a lot.

"I'm very happy to see him doing so well at Huesca. Yes, I think Wolves should now have doubts about selling him.

"However, at the end of the day, it is the player who has the final word about where he wants to play too."
