In-demand Brazilian forward Jonathas confirms that he has played his last game for Elche, sparking a transfer scramble in Spain's top flight.

Brazilian forward Jonathas has confirmed that he will leave Elche at the end of the season.

The 26-year-old has spent this term on loan at Elche from Pescara and has netted 14 times for the La Liga club.

It is understood that Elche have a deal in place to make Jonathas's move permanent, but they will then look to sell the striker for a big profit.

"This was my last game with Elche. I'll always have a special place in my heart for these fans," Jonathas told reporters after scoring twice in Elche's 3-2 defeat against Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.

Atletico Madrid have been strongly linked with the forward.
