Malaga complete Ochoa deal

The Mexico goalkeeper was one of the surprise packages of the World Cup and has at last found a new club after his contract with Ajaccio expired at the end of last season

Malaga have completed the signing of Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa on a three-year contract.

The 29-year-old was a free agent after his deal with French side Ajaccio expired at the end of last season, but his performances for Mexico at the World Cup ensured he wasn't short of offers this summer.

Ochoa had been linked with moves to AC Milan and Liverpool but has instead opted for a fresh start in La Liga.

"Malaga Club de Futbol has reached an agreement to sign one of the best goalkeepers from the recent World Cup in Brazil, Guillermo Ochoa," read a statement on the club's official website. 

"He will wear the Blue and Whites' shirt for the next three seasons. Ochoa has successfully passed the routine medical checks."

Ochoa began his career with America in his homeland and made over 300 appearances during his stay at the club.

A move to Ajaccio ensued in July 2011 and he played over 100 league and cup games in France.

Malaga were in the market for a new keeper after Willy Caballero opted to join Premier League champions Manchester City.
