PLANETFOOTBALL.COM can reveal that Spanish international Juanfran is destined for a move to The Premiership this summer, with two clubs already jostling for his signature.
The 25-year-old Celta Vigo full back has already told his agents to get him a move to England and the response has been good.
Two sides are believed to have held preliminary discussions, while a fee is still being agreed with Celta - who are resigned to losing the player, if he wants to leave.
Juanfran has emerged as Spain's first choice left back and will travel to the World Cup, possibly as one of The Premiership's latest arrivals.
The player began his career with Levante, before moving to Valencia in 1997. He spent two seasons at La Mestalla before securing a switch to Celta - after the Galician side beat Real Madrid and Barcelona to his signature.
The clubs interested in Juanfran remain a mystery, but it stands to reason only England's elite and richest could land the talented defender.
