Yago Falque has joined La Liga side Rayo Vallecano on loan until the end of the season. The Spanish attacking midfielder, who has also previously spent time on loan with Southampton, played a prominent role in helping Almeria to promotion to Spain's top flight last season during a six-month loan spell that saw him play 22 league games and scoring twice. A journalist on twitter has it that Rayo has a right to buy at the end of the loan - unclear how correct this is. Rayo is regarded as the 3rd team in Madrid - after Real and Athletico. Finished 8th in La Ligua in 2012/13.
