Former Harambee Stars midfielder McDonald Mariga has signed for Spanish side Real Oviedo.
Mariga, brother to Kenyan captain and Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama, has signed a one year contract with the second division side. The club have confirmed the signing on their official website.
"Real Oviedo has come to an agreement to contract services of center midfielder McDonald Mariga, "Mariga", for the coming season.
"The player will join training sessions immediately, after having passed medical examinations in the Clínica Asturias. He will work under the directions of Juan Antonio Anquela beginning this afternoon (Monday) in order to be completely ready for the coach when the season begins."
After bureaucratic procedures hindered a transfer to Manchester City, the doors were open for Mariga to go to Inter Milan, with whom he made his Champions League debut in 2010 and, led by Jose Mourinho, won six titles: Serie A, Champions League, Copa Italia (twice), Supercopa Italia, and Club World Cup.
Mariga joins Oviedo from Unione Sportiva Latina, in Serie B, where he played 28 games in the previous season
