Malaga’s Ontiveros to Valladolid

Malaga midfielder Javi Ontiveros is set to join second tier club Real Valladolid on a loan deal for the remainder of the campaign, say reports.

The 20-year-old rose to prominence for the Andalucian club last season, making 18 top-flight appearances, but has only started one La Liga match so far this season.

The Marbella-born midfielder, who has represented Spain at Under-19 level, will be allowed to leave Estadio Rosaleda for the Segunda outfit, according to Cadena Cope journalist Javier Bautista.

Malaga currently sit at the foot of La Liga while Valladolid sit tenth in the second tier, two points of the promotion playoff places.
