Granada manager Tony Adams has revealed that the club are trying to secure a permanent deal for Ghanaian Mubarak Wakaso.

The Black Stars man is on a half-season loan at the La Liga club from Greek giants Panathinaikos.

He has made a strong impression at the club and Adams says they want to keep the player on their roster permanently.

The former Arsenal defender says he will do everything he can to rescue Granada from relegation to the Spanish second tier.

"I don't expect the supporters to be happy with the situation," Adams said.

"I'm not, the owners aren't, but it's important for us to keep fighting, try everything we can to get results in the short term and to stay in La Liga.

"Longer term obviously we need to build a football club, but that's going to take a little bit longer. Hopefully the supporters will understand.

"I met them yesterday, they're completely aware of the situation.

"I told the supporters that we've already got [Rene] Krhin signed, Wakaso we're trying to do in the next couple of weeks, Ingason is signed to the club, [Matthieu] Saunier is signed to the club, whatever division we're in. We've got some very good players."
