According to journalist Kike Marin, Jon Toral is set to join CF Granada on loan for the 2016/17 campaign.
The La Liga side just avoided relegation last season, and Toral will join off the back of a fantastic loan spell at Birmingham City.
The 21 year old was named Supporter’s Player of the Season – garnering 40% more votes than anyone else.
He won goal of the season for a brilliant volley against Ipswich, and won the acclaim of his peers by being named Players Player of the Year.

It doesn’t appear to have been enough to convince Arsene Wenger to make him part of the Arsenal first team squad, and with just one year left on his current deal this could spell the end of his career in North London.
However, it’s not impossible that he might sign new terms before he goes – enabling Arsenal to see him develop further or get a fee should they decide to move him on.
We’ll see how this one goes, but with competition from Granit Xhaka, Mohamed Elneny, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Santi Cazorla, Francis Coquelin and Mesut Ozil for a place in the team, a loan spell is no real surprise.
