The Whites forward spent last term with the Segunda División RFEF side, featuring 19 times and scoring three goals.

Reports had initially suggested Temenuzhkov would cancel his contract at Elland Road to opt for a permanent move but the 21-year-old has made the temporary switch back to Spain once again and his contract in West Yorkshire still has a season to run.

Temenuzhkov joined the Thorp Arch ranks in 2017 following his release from La Liga giants Barcelona as a youth player.

He helped the club lift the Professional Development League titles at both Under-18s and Under-23s level during his academy stay.

Temenuzhkov was handed his senior bow by head coach Marcelo Bielsa in the third round of the FA Cup against Queens Park Rangers three years ago.

He will now spend the 2021/22 season out on loan once more.
