Jon Toral

Jon Toral has joined La Liga side Granada on a season-long loan.

The 21-year-old midfielder has spent the past two years on loan in the Championship, and will now test himself in the top tier of his native Spain.

Toral played for Birmingham City in 2015/16, making a total of 36 appearances and scoring eight goals. His performances saw him voted players’ player and supporters’ player of the year at the club’s end-of-season awards.

In 2014/15 he impressed on loan with Brentford, playing 35 league games and netting on six occasions. A regular for our under-21s before his loan spells, Toral has been involved with the Arsenal first-team squad for pre-season trips to Singapore and New York. We would like to wish Jon well for his time in Spain. The deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
