Malaga have signed goalkeeper Willy Caballero from Elche as an emergency replacement for the injured Sergio Asenjo.

The transfer fee has not yet been disclosed but the Spanish Primera Division side revealed the 29-year-old's contract with the club is set to run until July 2013.

Caballero has been signed in the wake of the season-ending injury to Asenjo, who joined the Boquerones on loan from Atletico Madrid in January.

The Argentine has been with Elche since 2004 and won the World Under-20 championship with Argentina in 2001.
