Granada end season of Barcelona midfielder Sergi Samper

Granada have ended the season of midfielder Sergi Samper.

Samper is on loan from Barcelona for the season, and the Andalucian club have to pay Barça a figure for every match that Samper plays.

AS says Granada's relegation from La Liga is already confirmed (along with Osasuna) and, as such, Tony Adams and co. have ostensibly decided that it would be prudent to save money by not playing Samper.

Samper was not involved with first-team training at Granada on Thursday. Instead, he played against Granada B for a team that featured a number of triallists.

Franck Tabanou and Panagiotis Kone, on loan from Swansea and Udinese respectively, played alongside Samper, which is indicative that their time at Los Cármenes is also coming to a close.
