Victor Camarasa’s loan agreement between Real Betis and Crystal Palace has ended early with the midfielder returning to Spain.
The 25-year-old was expected to remain at Selhurst Park until the summer after joining on a season-long loan in August, but struggled for game time under Eagles manager Roy Hodgson.
He only appeared once in the Premier League this campaign – as a late substitute during a 4-0 loss at Tottenham – and started one other game in the Carabao Cup; a penalty shoot-out defeat to Colchester.
A number of injury and fitness issues hampered the former Spain Under-21 international’s time in London, although when available he sometimes struggled to make the bench for Palace.
Camarasa was recently absent with a calf strain, but has since joined LaLiga side Alaves on loan until the end of the season.
