Diario Vasco claim that the 22-year-old striker has turned down the chance to return home to Andalusia with his former club and will sign for La Real soon.


Saints paid Malaga a reported fee of £5million to sign Juanmi last summer but he was quickly discarded by boss Ronald Koeman and made only 12 Premier League appearances for the club, all as a substitute.

He did start two cup matches but failed to score for the club at all and will hope to get his career back on track in the Basque Country.

Real Sociedad finished level on points with Malaga this season but were one place below them in the Primera Division table with an inferior goal difference and head-to-head record.
