Jose Angel Crespo has joined Rayo Vallecano on loan from Aston Villa until the end of the 2015-16 season.
Crespo, who signed from Cordoba last summer, has played just once since signing for the club, with this sole appearance coming in October's home defeat to Stoke.

The 28-year-old defender has previously played for Sevilla and Racing Santander as well as having spells in Italy with Padova, Bologna and Verona before his move to Villa Park back in July.
The defender has also played four times for Spain's under-21 squad, but has since failed to progress into the senior side.
