Chivas are set to buy Santiago Ormeño outright after their plan to get the striker on loan from León fell through.

The Flock had reportedly agreed a deal with Grupo Pachuca that would see Ormeño come on a temporary basis to Guadalajara, with outcast winger Javier ‘Chofis’ López going on loan to Pachuca.

Grupo Pachuca owns both León and Pachuca, as well Spanish side Real Oviedo and Atlético Atenas in Uruguay among other clubs.

But with López apparently unwilling to move to Los Tuzos, Chivas have changed plans.

“Santiago Ormeño, Chivas is going to buy him due to Chofis López’s refusal to go to another team and is negotiating the purchase price, for which everything continues to be stopped,” reporter Fernando Schwartz told Fox Sports Radio.

“There will be no other way because Chofis found out and he is not going to change,” Schwartz added.

Los Rojiblanocs are in desperate need of attacking reinforcements after they lost José Juan Macías to a season-ending knee injury just before the start of the Apertura.
