Difficult season for the loaned players; they faced problems to leave the club and in some cases to integrate to their new teams. Rochela even had to chance twice. Some of these players will return for Depor’s campaign at Segunda.

Grey season for the five loaned players at Deportivo; in the first place they faced problems in order to leave the Galician club, then, as a consequence, faced problems to adapt to their new teams. The result is that they barely played.

Seoane was the main with more minutes, while Rochela faced the toughest situation as he had to switch the Segunda División for the Israeli league. The worrying thing is that some of them should be returning to Depor in order to take part of the project at Segunda.

Juan Carlos Real: (SD Huesca, Segunda División) Rude season for the Galician playmaker; he was the only Fabril’s member that played an official game during the past season, many people expected he was going to be promoted to the first team for this campaign, but the club had other plans and decided to loan him out. The problem is that they tried to close to operation until the last day of the summer window and it failed, so the player stayed at Depor B. It was commented that Lendoiro was upset with him and that he was denied to train with the first squad, though Oltra always denied it.

In the first half of the season he made 16 appearances with Depor B scoring four goals and bringing four assists then the player finally went out during the winter window. His destiny was SD Huesca at Segunda División. But the 22-year-old player didn’t find stability there; he debuted scoring a goal in the 2-1 win visiting CD Numancia (matchday 23).

But Juan Carlos never earned the respect of coach Jorge D'Alessandro, as a result of this he only played three times as a starter making other six appearances coming out from the bench. Within March and April he only made one appearance, it was to play 49 minutes in the 2-2 draw against Córdoba CF (matchday 39). SD Huesca failed to clinch the salvation and it’s back at Segunda B. Now the playmaker returns to A Coruña, callous, but with the impression that he hasn’t made any progress in his career, after all he only played 374 minutes at Liga Adelante 2012/14.

Diego Seoane: (Córdoba CF, Segunda División) Similar situation to the one faced by Juan Carlos; for months the club tried to renew his contract ending in 2013. There was interest in him coming from Segunda as Oltra wasn’t going to rely on him on the Primera campaign, but the club blocked any exit as the right-back didn’t want to renew his contract. So, Seoane stayed out of any official game for the first six months on the season. Things changed as in January 28, 2013 he decided to sign a three-year extension. It was also decided that he was going to play loaned at Segunda club Córdoba CF until the end of the campaign.

At least his season at Córdoba was more stable than the one of Juan Carlos at SD Huesca, because the side defender played in 12 of the 18 Segunda matches after landing at the Andalusian club. He left a positive impression despite Córdoba lost eleven games in 2013, a negative rally that pulled the team out of any promotion chance. Totally he played 940 minutes on the Segunda campaign. It can be said that it was a positive experience for him, now Fernando Vázquez must decide if he should join Deportivo ahead of next season.

David Rochela: (Racing Santander, Segunda División - Hapoel Tel Aviv, Israeli Premier League) The player with the most complicate season. He found an early exit during the pre-season as Depor wanted to see him gaining minutes at Liga Adelante, in this way a loan deal was signed with Racing Santander. But the Cantabrian club lived a horrible season and by the beginning of the liga tournament they have already changed the coach.

Despite the instability, the centre-back managed to accumulate 985 minutes distributed in twelve games, eleven of them as a starter. Still, Racing Santander didn’t want him to stay and allowed the exit of the 23-year-player to the Israeli Premier League, Depor accepted and the player lived a drastic change.

But it turned to be a positive switch for Rochela, he managed to play three games in the regular round and later he made ten more appearances in the final round of the league tournament, always completing the full ninety minutes. In the end his team ended third and qualified for the UEFA Europa League. In a recent interview he said that he liked the experience and that would be open to play there once again, so it has been commented that he could live another full season in Israel.

Stefan Deák:  (BFC Siófok, Hungarian National Championship I) The 22-year-old centre-back never left a positive impression in the few matches that he played at Depor B and was loaned to a Israel club for the past season, on the campaign that has just ended he was loaned to BFC Siófok from Hungary. He made 14 appearances in a season of 30 matches (1,155 minutes) and the true is that the Serbian left a mediocre impression, without committing too many errors, but neither without been considered a vital piece at the team.

Actually, he wasn’t picked for the crucial game against Újpest FC, match that was the last battle for the permanence. His team lost 0-1 and suffered the relegation. Deák was a bet of Ernesto Bello when the player was 19, but hasn’t show anything special within the last three years and is unlikely that he will return to Deportivo.

Felipe Ramos: (Valencia B, Segunda División B) Another player that never found a spot at Fabril. The Madrilenian keeper was firstly loaned to Mallorca B and then landed at Valencia B, team that competed at Segunda B during the season that has just ended. He was the starting goalkeeper at the beginning of the tournament, but suddenly coach Paco López began to make rotations and in the end Ramos and Adrián Lluna were exchanging the spots every weekend.

It was a positive season for him though, his team clinched the salvation by a single point and he allowed 41 goals in 27 matches, not bad in a team trying to avoid the pit. Besides, at the middle of May he was picked by Ernesto Valverde to the first team ahead of the Primera visit to Getafe CF, this since Diego Alves was injured. In any case, Ramos is 25 and is unlikely that he will return to Depor, manly as Marc Martinez (Depor B) and David Gómez (Juvenil A) are pushing from behind.
