C.D. Leganés and Valencia C.F. reached an agreement on Friday to sign 25-year-old centre-back Jorge Sáenz on loan for one season. The Tenerife-born player reinforces the Leganes defence for this year after having played the second half of last season at C.D. Mirandés. The agreement includes an option to buy in case of promotion to LaLiga Santander.
C.D. Leganés will play two new friendlies against Rayo Vallecano and Albacete. The Madrid derby will be played on Wednesday 27 July at 19:30 and the friendly match against the La Mancha team will be played on Saturday 30 July at 19:30, both matches will be held at the Butarque Sports Facility.
C.D. Leganés and goalkeeper Asier Riesgo, 38, reached an agreement on Friday to renew his contract for the 2022/23 season. In this way, the Basque goalkeeper will continue for the third consecutive season defending the Pepinero shirt.
Riesgo arrived at Butarque in the summer of 2020 from Girona F.C. after a long career of more than two decades in our football in the First and Second Division. Since then, he has defended the Blue and Whites' goal in 38 official matches, conceding 34 goals, conceding an average of less than one goal per match and keeping a clean sheet on fifteen occasions.
Thus, the Guipuzcoan will start the pre-season next week under the orders of Imanol Idiakez, starting his third season at Leganés. Welcome back, Asier!
C.D. Leganés and Unai Bustinza will not continue together in the next season 2022/23. The 30-year-old Bilbao-born defender ends his time as a Leganés player after seven seasons at Butarque, in which he made 161 official appearances.
