Adelaide United loanee Sergi Guardiola linked with move to Real Murcia

Misfiring striker Sergi Guardiola could soon leave Adelaide United to return to Spain.

Guardiola, on loan to the A-League club from Spain's Granada, has been linked to a return to his homeland and second division outfit Real Murcia.

"Talks are ongoing but nothing is finalised yet," Adelaide's general manager of football Ante Kovacevic told News Corp.

Guardiola arrived in Adelaide amid much fanfare but underwhelming form led to him starting the past two games from the bench -- he's scored three goals in 14 games for the battling defending champions.

The ninth-placed Reds, winners twice in 16 games this season, have scored only 12 goals -- the fewest of any A-League side.
