Fabian, Diop set for Eibar debuts

Midfield duo Fabian Orellana and Pape Diop are set to make their debuts for Eibar in Saturday’s match at Las Palmas.

Chilean international Orellana fell out of favour at Valencia despite only joining from Celta Vigo in January 2017 and has agreed a loan deal at Eibar until the end of the season.

The 31-year-old has been training with his new teammates since the start of December and Marca report he is set to become a permanent fixture in the team.

Diop, 31, has signed an 18-month contract with the Basque club after his departure from Espanyol, where he had spent two-and-a-half seasons.

The holding midfielder – who has also had stints at Gimnastic, Racing Santander and Levante – had only featured in five of the Catalan club’s La Liga fixtures this campaign.

Eibar currently sit 7th in La Liga having won 16 points in their last six matches.
