Wolves striker Rafa Mir comments on his future ahead of summer decision

Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Rafa Mir says he isn’t currently thinking about where he’ll be playing his football next season.

The 23-year-old is currently on loan at SD Huesca in La Liga, where he is firmly involved in a relegation battle.

The Spanish outfit are currently bottom of the table, but Mir’s haul of seven league goals has helped them not to be cut totally adrift.

Huesca are four point from safety, and Mir’s form is going to be key to their survival.

He has 10 across all competitions this term, and 19 in 45 in total for a club he’s been with since January 2020 following an uninspiring spell with Nottingham Forest.

It’s not a bad return in a struggling team, and some Wolves fans have wondered whether he might get another chance in Nuno Espirito Santo’s first-team squad.

Speaking on his future, Mir said (Sport): “I’m not thinking about that now.

“It’s true that I will have to make a decision because I have one year left on my contract with Wolves, but I’m thinking about the day-to-day, about continuing to show what a footballer I am, and above all, about the game against Barça.

“When the time comes, we will sit down together to see what is best for my future.

“This summer, I will have to decide which way I will go… We will see what happens.”

Wolves should monitor Mir closely

With Willian Jose not yet pulling up any trees at Molineux, Wolves need to be keeping an eye on what Mir does between now and the end of the season.

He’s never really had a look in back at Molineux and has made only four appearances for the first-team.

He’s a more mature player now and has gotten crucial game time in the last year.

There’s potential he could play a back-up role next season if Jose does not come good.
