Serbia Under-20 international Vukašin Jovanović looks set to become Eibar's latest recruit of the January transfer window. The central defender has already passed a medical and his transfer is expected to be made official in the next few hours.
Jovanović joins from Girondins de Bordeaux, where he has made 16 Ligue 1 appearances this season. A niggling knee problem has kept him out of first team action since December - his last game was in the 1-0 defeat to Nice just before Christmas.
Eibar coach José Luis Mendilibar mentioned that the club was hoping to strengthen the defence by bringing in a player during the winter window - initially on a loan basis but with the intention of making the move permanent.
Thiago Bebe loaned out to Rayo Vallecano
Elsewhere Cape Verdean forward Thiago Bebé became the last player to leave Eibar during the January window. This morning it was confirmed that Bebé will return to Rayo Vallecano on loan until the end of the season. The player didn't turn up for today's training session which sparked rumours among the press which were later acknowledged by both clubs.
