Sergio Gonzalez is close to a return to Espanyol from Deportivo La Coruna.
Deportivo La Coruna and Espanyol are close to agreeing a deal for midfielder Sergio Gonzalez to return to the Catalan club.
Sergio joined Depor in 2001 following eight seasons with Espanyol but could be about to return to his former club as part of the deal that took Albert Lopo in the opposite direction.
Deportivo still owe around é¼3 million (£2 million) to Sergio's former club from the original transfer that took the 30-year-old to the Riazor, but are close to settling the agreement.
Sergio will meet with Espanyol officials on Wednesday to negotiate terms before the deal is confirmed by both clubs.
