Raul Tamudo and Espanyol must reach an agreement about the striker's future because the saga is beginning to have a negative affect on the team and the club, Ivan de la Pena believes.

The Blanc i Blau captain thinks that the public stand-off between the player and the Catalan outfit is a distraction and is harming Espanyol's standing in the game.

While the club maintain that Tamudo has requested to leave, the player himself has accused the directors of lying, stating that he would stay if he could.

Any possibility of him remaining with the Catalan outfit now appears to have gone as the club are no longer willing to renew his contract when it runs out next summer, and De la Pena wants a solution to be found.

"For the good of Tamudo, the club and everyone, the best thing that can happen is that an agreement is reach as quickly as possible," he was quoted as saying by Sport.

"I hope that that in a few months we will all look back on this as just an anecdote and that he can leave with his head held high through the front door.

"This is not benefiting anyone. He is a symbol of the club and the people will remember all the good things that he has done for Espanyol.

"I think that after more time has passed people will consider him to be one of the best players to have ever played for the club."
