Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos is being lined up for a return to Real Betis.
After a season away on-loan with Arsenal, Ceballos is back with Real Madrid, though with little indication that he'll see action under coach Carlo Ancelotti.
ABC says a deal between Real Madrid and Betis is now close to being settled.
Ceballos is set to join his old club in January on-loan to the end of the season with a permanent option set at €20m.
The midfielder was all set to join Betis last month, but an injury suffered at the Tokyo Olympics scuppered the move.
