Official: Alexis joins Alaves

Alaves have announced the signing of former Getafe, Valencia and Sevilla defender Alexis Ruano on a one-year contract.

Alexis only joined Besiktas from Getafe at the beginning of the year and helped the Turkish giants win the Super Lig, but the recent political turmoil in the country prompted the 30-year-old to push through a return to Spain.

The La Liga new boys describe their new recruit as “a great connoisseur of Spanish football“, who is best known for his “aerial ability”, on their official website.

He follows the likes of Zouhair Feddal, Deyverson, Daniel Torres and Nenad Krsticic in making the move to Navarre this summer.
