Las Palmas secure Chichizola deal

Las Palmas have completed the signing of goalkeeper Leandro Chichizola from Italian Serie B side Spezia, the club have confirmed.

The 27-year-old has signed a one-year deal with Los Amarillos with the option of a second and will move to the Gran Canarian club on a free transfer.

The Argentine will replace the hugely experienced Javi Varas, who recently joined Granada after his contract with Las Palmas had run down.

Chichizola joined Spezia from River Plate – for whom he made 36 appearances – in the summer of 2014 and kept 20 clean sheets in 47 competitive games this season, conceding 41 goals.
