"I am happy and content to return to a side that gave me the chance to go to Europe and I should give them back what they gave me."
Espanyol's sporting director Jordi Lardin said previously that his side would not throw in the towel when it came to trying to bring Reyes back, although they are studying alternatives. Their are looking for two more central defenders, or one and a midfielder.
