Malaga have signed attacker Julio Baptista from Roma on a three-and-a-half year deal, the Spanish club confirmed on their official website.

The 29-year-old had fallen down the pecking order at the Italian side and had been mooted to join the Rosaleda outfit for quite some time.

The details of the contract have not been revealed but the transfer fee is €2 million as was confirmed by board member Jose Carlos Perez last week.

Malaga will be Baptista's third Spanish club after his time at Sevilla and Real Madrid.
