The campus is as follows: Goalkeepers: Álvaro Valles, Raúl Fernández and Álex Domínguez. Defenses: Álvaro Lemos, Raúl Navas, Ale Díez, Eric Curbelo, Ferigra, Álex Suárez, Sergi Cardona, Saúl Coco and David Vicente. Midfielders: Mfulu, Enzo Loiodice, Kirian, Alberto Moleiro, Óscar Clemente, Maikel Mesa, Benito, Pejiño, Pinchi, Unai Veiga, Fabio, Jonathan Viera, and Joel del Pino.

Álvaro Valles, Coco, Eric Curbelo, Sergi Cardona and Fabio. Included in this section is Raúl Navas, who was automatically renewed after reaching 25 official matches.

In addition, Tino Luis Cabrera ceased to be the technical secretary (he returned to Real Betis), and Paco González (responsible for big data) also ended his stage at UD Las Palmas.
As for the coaching staff,
García Pimienta, in principle, will have the same work team: Álex García (assistant coach), Momo and Turu Flores (technical assistants), José Yepes (goalkeeping coach), and David Gómez (physical trainer), who after the dismissal of Pepe Mel continued to perform his duties at the club and is now waiting to extend his relationship with UD Las Palmas in a new stage. The talks are on the right track.
Another task is also indicated in Helguera’s notebook:
the extension of the contract Moleiro (contract ends in June and FC Barcelona is the team most interested in having him on their squad), Kirian Rodríguez, Mfulu and Frenchman Enzo Loiodice.
