Paris Saint-Germain forward Jese joins Las Palmas on loan

Jese arrives at Las Palmas just six months after joining PSG from Real Madrid.

Paris Saint-Germain winger Jese Rodriguez has joined hometown club Las Palmas on loan for the rest of the season.

La Liga side Las Palmas have secured the 23-year-old's services just six months after he joined PSG from Real Madrid in a €25 million deal.

A Las Palmas club statement read: "The Gran Canaria-born forward Jese Rodriguez will play on loan at UD Las Palmas until June 30, 2016.

"The specific wish of the player to wear the yellow colours has been crucial for the agreement with Paris Saint-Germain to get done."

PSG later released a statement which read: "The Club wishes Jese all the very best for the challenge that awaits him in his native city."

Las Palmas president Miguel Angel Ramirez had already said this week that Jese -- linked with Liverpool, AC Milan and Roma earlier in the window -- was willing to take a huge pay cut to join his club

PSG coach Unai Emery said earlier this month that the player could leave on loan in the transfer window as he could not guarantee him regular playing time.

Jese made just nine Ligue 1 appearances for PSG, with only one of those a start.

Middlesbrough were among the clubs keen to acquire the player's services, with coach Aitor Karanka having recently said he was trying to convince Jese to join the Premier League side during the winter transfer window, but he opted for Las Palmas, who are 11th in La Liga after Monday's 3-1 home win over Valencia.

Jese is under contract with PSG until June 2021.
