Barca Loans Out Midfielder, Sergi Samper

Barcelona midfielder Sergi Samper will spend the rest of the season on loan at Las Palmas, both clubs announced on Thursday.

Once thought of as one of Barca’s brightest prospects, Samper, 22, has struggled to break into the first team, making just 12 appearances since his debut in 2014.

“A young player with potential, he fits the profile of the club to cover the central midfield position,” Las Palmas said in a statement.

Samper also spent last season out on loan at relegated Granada.
