Martin Odegaard’s loan move to Dutch side Heerenveen has sparked plenty of intrigue, with many (real) experts hailing the transfer as an excellent step forward for the young 18 year-old Norwegian wunderkid.

Journalist Dermot Corrigan expressed his approval of the move and chose to link an ESPN article to provide context for his comment. Unfortunately for ESPN, they had a little trouble getting the picture of Odegaard right, choosing to instead display Marcos Llorente as their cover image.

Marcos caught wind of Dermot’s tweet and assured everyone that he was quite happy to stay at Alavés for now.

But seeing an opportune moment, Heerenveen chose to cheekily express interest in a loan move for Marcos Llorente with an excellently fashioned tweet.

While it’s clear that it’s just a joke, it’s probably true that Heerenveen would be more than glad to make use of Marcos’ talents, something that speaks well about the season he’s been having over at Alavés.
