The La Liga giants have allowed the Spain international to join their domestic rivals on loan for the remainder of the 2017-18 season

Munir El Haddadi has left Barcelona to join Deportivo Alaves on a season-long loan deal.

The 22-year-old forward was not considered part of Ernesto Valverde's first-team plans at Camp Nou and a host of clubs, both in La Liga and abroad, were registered with an interest in the forward during the transfer window.
