The 31-year-old has made 29 appearances for the Rebels in all competitions this term, scoring five goals in the process, including a Boxing Day strike against Sussex rivals Eastbourne Borough.

However, the Spaniard has been in and out of the starting eleven of late and he now links up with AFC Totton in a search for more regular football, with the aim to compete for a place back in the side upon his return in a month’s time.

Totton are currently placed fifth in the Southern League Premier South and are in the mix in the battle for promotion to the National League South.

Everyone at the club would like to wish Joan the best of luck for his loan move to the Stags.
