Ojeda resigns, points to Alcorcón and gives Brandon a free pass

Termination by mutual agreement with Leganés. There was a need to release chips for Brandon's arrival, which is now official. Ojeda will sign for Alcorcón.


The Leganés has reached an agreement to terminate by mutual agreement the contract that united Dani Ojeda (26 years) with the pepineros until the end of this season. The pact has been reached without differences between the parties and after the club understood that its departure through the usual channels, that is, by means of a transfer, was almost unfeasible. In addition, Leganés was pressed by the need to release chips to finalize the arrival, as a loan from Osasuna, of Brandon Thomas, a 25-year-old Mallorcan striker with whom an agreement had been reached at the end of last week and whose incorporation has already been made official. The statement came a few minutes after Ojeda's goodbye.

Thomas inherits the number '7' from Dani Ojeda, the only one that is now free of the 25 professional cards that Leganés had occupied. With the signing of this old striker known to Martí (he played with him in Mallorca and had him under his orders in Girona), Leganés will once again complete the maximum quota allowed by LaLiga.

Brandon lands in Leganés on loan from an Osasuna who has ratified that his assignment is "without a purchase option." Able to play not only at the top, but also lying on the sides, this season he had barely enjoyed continuity due to the competition in Osasuna and because he was recovering from an injury earlier in the season. Until now he had only competed 118 minutes in the Cup.

Dani Ojeda will sign for Alcorcón

Ojeda, meanwhile, is close to signing the remainder of the season with Alcorcón, a club that in recent weeks had increased its interest in the Canarian striker. It was not the only proposal, but it was the one that most convinced the footballer for several reasons, among them the ease of not having to move his residence in the middle of the season.

Other teams such as Las Palmas had slipped days ago their growing interest in the forward, but the complicated economic outlook that the island entity is experiencing made its immediate incorporation unfeasible both in terms of salaries, and in terms of transfer or compensation to the player after being released from contract.

A Déjà vu a la pepinera

Ojeda signed for Leganés in the summer of 2018 in a future operation. After his good season at Lorca, the club understood that it was an interesting investment and at zero cost. He arrived after finalizing the contract with Murcia. He was top scorer in that preseason and made his debut in the First Division. However, Pellegrino left him almost without a presence in the eleven due to the change of system to 5-3-2 and the demand of a team threatened by relegation.

In January 2019 he signed for Granada on loan and, after being promoted to First, he signed for Albacete in the summer of 2019, also on loan. His goals were key in the permanence of La Mancha last season.

With Leganés relegation, it was suspected that his role would be more important, but after playing at the beginning of the course, he again found himself on the bench or the stands with no options to play in a Déjà vu that even left him last Saturday without the award of the Copa del Rey despite having participated in the previous rounds. With his departure he puts an end to two and a half years as a cucumber in which he could only play in the squad during two initial halves of the championship.
