Racing Santander have confirmed that Stephane Dalmat will not be leaving the club.Racing Santander have confirmed that Stephane Dalmat will not be leaving the club during the January transfer window.
The French midfielder has not had the expected impact at Racing since his switch from Toulouse last summer.
Indeed, his days at the Primera outfit looked numbered earlier in the month when the club publicly castigated both he and his brother, Wilfried, for returning late from their Christmas holidays.
It seemed the duo would be moved on, but after clear-the-air talks they have been given a second chance and will now look to make their mark in the second half of the season.
"He has had personal problems as well as difficulties adapting to a new country but now he wants to focus on Racing and fit in as quickly as he can," Dalmat's agent Alexander Krcstic declared.
Racing manager Manuel Preciado added: "He has admitted that he hasn't been on form and he wants to start making a positive contribution from now on.
"Stephane is working well in daily training and I hope together all of us at the club can give him a helping hand."
