Former Swansea City star Roque Mesa’s career could be set to take another twist.
The 30-year-old, who returned to Spain after just six months in South Wales, has admitted that his time with Sevilla could be up.
Mesa moved to SA1 in the summer of 2017 in an £11million deal, but failed to settle under Paul Clement and left on loan in January 2018 to join the La Liga club.
He made the move permanent the following summer, and despite playing 31 times last season, he could be used as a makeweight in a €30million deal for Levante’s Jose Campana as sporting director Monchi looks to clear the books at the club.
“The reality is that I am one of the transferable players here,” Mesa acknowledged in an interview in La Provincia, as cited by Marca .
“I have a contract with Sevilla (until June 2021) but if a club comes in and they want to sign me and Sevilla are satisfied, then I’ll see agree to it, but it has to be something that is good for all parties.
“At the moment I am calm and I am enjoying my time here and I am with my family and if I have to go, I will do it with my head held high.
“I always wish Sevilla the best, my professionalism is guaranteed by my career.”
Mesa was the right player at the wrong time for Swansea, who failed to get the best out of the former Las Palmas playmaker. The Swans at the time were in a downward spiral and Mesa was a victim of it.
But, in truth, the midfielder also struggled with the physicality of the Premier League, with Clement frustrated that Mesa’s adaption to British football took longer than expected.
“His adaptation period is over. We are into November now and he, and others, will be picked on merit,” said Clement during the autumn of Mesa’s first season.
“When I see signs of consistency and readiness, a player will get his chance.”
But despite getting game-time through December, Mesa returned to Spain in the January transfer window.
