Nuno Espirito Santo has admitted that Jesus Vallejo would have to quit Wolves in order to get more playing time.

Jesus Vallejo is expected to make his return to Real Madrid this month after struggling to find minutes with Wolves this season.

The Spanish center back joined the Premier League side before the start of the season in search of regular playing time. After making just two appearances so far, Wolves clearly have not been able to match Vallejo’s requirements.

Hence, the 22-year old seems to be heading back to his parent club, Real Madrid, this month to look for a better match for himself.

“I’m going to be clear: Jesus probably is going because he wants to play,” the Wolves said as per Goal.

“He’s a young and talented player that we brought here with high expectations. But it didn’t work out.

“It’s time for him to go and find a club where he can play and keep on progressing because the talent is there,” Nuno Espirito Santo claimed.

“It’s based on reality. He had moments that he played, moments that he performed well, and some moments he didn’t perform well. That’s the case of Vallejo. Clearly, it didn’t work out.”
