Real Madrid and Levante have reached an agreement over the transfers of both Dani Gomez and Jorge De Frutos, according to a report from El Laguero of Cadena Ser Valencia. Each player had graduated from Real Madrid Castilla last season and showcased their skill-set on loan in the Segunda Division.

Dani Gomez was a star for Tenerife. The 21-year-old striker scored 11 goals and provided 2 assists in over 2,500 minutes for the island-side. He was also called up to Luis De La Fuente’s U21 Spanish National Team for the first time this season and earned two caps.

The other player involved in the outgoing transfer for Real Madrid is Jorge De Frutos. A tricky right sided winger who proved to be a quality asset for both Real Madrid Castilla and Rayo Vallecano. De Frutos was part of a trio of Madrid players (Lunin, Javi Sanches, and De Frutos) who did not feature at all for Real Valladolid at the beginning of the season. A move to Rayo in the winter re-ignited his young career and saw him make 17 appearances, scoring 2 goals and providing 1 assist. The 23-year-old only has one year remaining on his contract and was expected to depart this summer.

A figure has yet to be reported, but Real Madrid would likely expect to see a total fee of around €4 - €7 million for both players, including any bonuses. It’s unclear yet whether a buy-back clause or a 50% hold of the players’ rights will be included in the deal. The transfers should be finalized in the coming days.
