Official: Alaves recruit Katai

Alaves have confirmed the eleventh hour signing of forward Aleksandar Katai from Red Star Belgrade.

The 25-year-old had previously been linked with Celta Vigo during the course of the summer transfer window, but will now ply his trade in the Basque country.

Katai sat out Red Star’s League match against Novi Pazar last weekend, prompting speculation that he was set for a move away.

The Serb has signed a three-year contract with his new club, having already scored six goals in 10 matches so far this season.

“Katai will get us out of our seats with his goals and assists wearing the Albiazul shirt,” part of a statement on Alaves’ official website reads.
