thumbnail Hello,

The Andalusian club have made the versatile American giant their third signing of transfer deadline day, having wrapped up deals for Roque Santa Cruz and Javier Saviola already

Malaga have signed Oguchi Onyewu on a season-long loan from Sporting Lisbon with a view to a permanent transfer.

The USA international can play in several positions but thrives in a central defensive role and will be added to the ranks already at coach Manuel Pellegrini's disposal.

The capture of Onyewu rounds off a busy day at La Rosaleda, as South American strikers Javier Saviola and Roque Santa Cruz were brought in on deadline day to help fill the void left by Jose Rondon's departure.

Onyewu is a Belgian passport holder from his time at Standard Liege, and thus does not infringe upon Malaga's non-EU allowance.
