Official: Malaga loan Basta from Swans

Malaga have confirmed the completion of a season-long loan deal for Swansea City striker and club record signing Borja Baston.

The Swans signed the striker for €18m from Atletico Madrid last summer after he scored 18 La Liga goals in 29 starts in a hugely successful loan spell at Eibar in 2015/16.

However, the 24-year-old netted only one Premier League goal in four starts as he struggled to break into the side under a succession of different managers, while a proposed January loan move to Villarreal fell through.

This move will see Borja replace Sandro Ramirez, who has joined Everton, at Los Boquerones with a rumour of an option to buy of €12m included in the deal.
