Liverpool flop Iago Aspas is keen to return to former club Celta Vigo this summer in search of first team football.

Aspas scored the goals which kept Celta Vigo in La Liga last term and on the back of his lethal nature secured a switch to Liverpool.

Life on Merseyside has been hard though, with Aspas failing to break past Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez in attack.

As a result the 26-year-old has only featured in 14 Premier League games this term, with nine of those appearances coming from the bench.


Now, according to local daily Faro de Vigo, Aspas is eyeing a return to Celta Vigo, with the club very much open to his arrival this summer.

The ball is now in Celta Vigo's court to reach an agreement with Liverpool which will see the Spaniard return to the Balaidos.

Aspas, a product of the Spanish side's youth system, has already given warning that he is not satisfied with his lot at Anfield.

"I'm not 20 years old anymore, I can't go on loan and explode", he said last month.

"I think the best would be to transfer to another club that I find the best fit for myself and the club.

"This is the hardest part. I used to play almost all the matches and I arrived here – playing much less."
