Granero moves to Real Sociedad on loan from QPR

Esteban Granero has returned to Spain to join UEFA Champions League play-off entrants Real Sociedad de Fútbol on a season-long loan from Queens Park Rangers FC.

Esteban Granero has joined UEFA Champions League play-off entrants Real Sociedad de Fútbol on a season-long loan from Queens Park Rangers FC with an option to make the move permanent in June.

Granero, 26, signed for the west London team at the beginning of the 2012/13 campaign, but, despite scoring once in 24 Premier League appearances, was unable to prevent the club's relegation.

The midfielder – who is set to be unveiled by La Real today – is returning to his homeland of Spain, where he enjoyed spells at Real Madrid CF either side of a two-season stay at Getafe CF.

Real Sociedad finished fourth in the Spanish Liga last term and take on Olympique Lyonnais in the play-offs, with the first leg in France on 20 August.
