Albion striker Florin Andone will have a new boss to impress if he is to make a belated impact at Cadiz.

The LaLiga Santander side have today sacked head coach Alvaro Cervera after a defeat to Osasuna.

He is likely to be replaced by Sergio González, ex boss of Real Valladolid and Espanyol.

Andone has struggled for playing time since going on loan.

Key figures at Cadiz, who are now 19th in the table, have been briefing media for several weeks that they were keen to send him back to Albion.

However Graham Potter last week told a press conference that the deal is for the full campaign.

The Albion head coach said: “The situation is he’s on loan for the season. Nothing further to add.”


Andone scored the winner in a cup game at Albacete and could feature in this weekend’s tie at Sporting Gijon.

He returned to league action for the first time since October when he went on as sub in defeat by Sevilla last week.

He also got on for half an hour of the 2-0 reverse at Osasuna which ultimately spelt the end for Cervera.

Both goals had already been scored at the time of the substitution and Andone was booked 11 minutes later.

It would appear his only route out of Cadiz would be if another deal could be lined up, as happened with Leo Ostigard when le left Stoke.

Ostigard made his debut for Genoa in Sunday’s 1-0 home defeat by Spezia in what was both a relegation six-pointer and a local derby.

That result has thrown the immediate future of head coach Andriy Shevchenko into doubt.
