Onyewu named in Malaga squad

United States defender Oguchi Onyewu has been included in the Malaga squad for Sunday’s clash with Athletic Bilbao.

Onyewu, 30, has not yet featured since joining Malaga on loan from Sporting CP at the end of last month, although he will do well to displace either Martin Demichelis or Weligton, who have been in impressive form for Manuel Pellegrini's side since the campaign began.

Pellegrini also welcomes back French midfielder Jeremy Toulalan and the Uruguayan forward Seba Fernandez after injury, although Sergio Sanchez sits out due to suspension, while Diego Buonanotte is injured.

Malaga squad to play Athletic Bilbao: Kameni, Jesus Gamez, Weligton, Demichelis, Camacho, Joaquin, Toulalan, Saviola, Seba, Willy, Monreal, Iturra, Duda, Eliseu, Portillo, Isco, Onyewu, Santa Cruz, Recio
