// A bit of a hack but it works// The article snippet is wrapped onto a second line, even when #article-sub is emptyif( $("div#article-sub").children().length == 0 ) {$("div#article-sub").remove();} West Brom's Borja Valero has revealed his desire to quit the Hawthorns for a loan return to the Primera Liga with Mallorca.

The Spanish midfielder joined the Baggies last summer for a club record £4.7million but failed to score a Premier League goal as he struggled to make an impact.

With the West Midlands club suffering relegation last term, Valero has vented his feelings by declaring his desire to seal a loan switch to former club Mallorca.

"I prefer to play in Mallorca and not to be in the second division in England," the 24-year-old said.

"This is clear. I am disposed for a loan return but it is necessary for an accord between the clubs.

"Mallorca have not contacted directly with me but contact does exist and I await news."

Valero developed through the youth ranks at Real Madrid before moving to Mallorca where he enjoyed a successful season before his switch to England, and the Spaniard admits he has fond memories of his time there.

He added: "I have big memories of my stay in Mallorca. The season with Dani Guiza and Ibagaza in the squad was sensational."
