Official: Malaga loan Llorente

Malaga have announced the signing of defender Diego Llorente on a season-long loan from Real Madrid.

An agreement between Malaga and Madrid had been reached as early as Tuesday, with Llorente arriving at La Rosaleda the morning after to fulfil his role in the transfer, but the move was held up due to an administrative issue.

The 22-year-old spent last season at Rayo Vallecano, his performances earning him his first Spain cap in May, and becomes Malaga’s seventh summer signing after Jony, Keko, Bakary Kone, Zdravko Kuzmanovic and Michael Santos and Juankar.
