Jesé Rodríguez was officially unveiled by UD Las Palmas on Tuesday evening after completing a loan switch to the LaLiga side from Paris Saint-Germain.

The 23-year-old forward, who is from the region, joins the club until the end of the season after a disappointing six months at the Ligue 1 giants.

Ex-Real Madrid man setting sights on Europe

Jesé - handed the number 10 shirt at Las Palmas - was paraded before almost 10,000 fans at the Estadio Gran Canaria following the deadline-day move.

And having had made just nine league appearances for PSG this term, the Real Madrid youth product declared: "I've come here to play and to improve as a player.

"I've come here to give my all and fight tooth and nail for the dream that we have - I want to help us try all together to get into Europe."

Only interested in joining Las Palmas

Jesé had also been a target for other European clubs - particularly Premier League side Middlesbrough - but said his heart was set on Las Palmas.

"My thoughts were always very clear," he explained. "If I left PSG, it would only be to return to my home club."
