Malaga have taken Raul Albentosa on a season-long loan from Derby County and have a purchase option in place for next summer.
Albentosa moved to Championship Derby in January after playing the first half of the season with Eibar, featuring 17 times and scoring twice.
He made nine appearances for the Rams but, after a successful medical, will spend 2015-16 at La Rosaleda.
Albentosa, 27, began his career at Elche before a succession of moves saw him wind up at Eibar, helping Los Ameros to promotion to the Primera.
