The Chronicle have done a report on the deal also. They are the ones that we can find quoting the fee as £2.5m.
This is what Lee Ryder writes of the fee for Joselu.
The former Stoke City striker netted just seven goals in 52 appearances and the fee is believed to be around the £2.5million figure.
We wish Joselu all the best. He is a really good lad and a very hard worker.
This is a good opportunity for him to return to Spain and resume his career in La Liga.
