After two-and-a-half years on-loan from parent club Manchester City at Celtic, the England youth international decided it was time to try something new, and opted to try his luck at Girona on a season-long loan deal.
Several niggling injuries, as well as taking time to adapt to his new surroundings, have halted Roberts from being an immediate mainstay in Girona’s starting XI, but he was given the nod to start at the Mestalla last night and managed to come up with a match-winning piece of skill:

It looks like Roberts is finally adjusting to the rigours and nuances of life in La Liga, and whilst he was denied by the Valencia goalie on this occasion, we’re willing to bet it’s not too long before he’s finding the net on a regular basis for his new club.
What do you think of Roberts’ move to Spain?
