Malaga To Present Edinho Alongside Albert Luque

Looking to build on their impressive season last time out, Malaga have added two more players to their ranks...
Malaga have reached a deal to sign Edinho from AEK and the forward is set to be presented alongside Albert Luque, who made his loan move from Ajax permanent.

The Andalucian club announced that the duo will be introduced to the media and then to the supporters as they continue to strengthen for the new season.

Edinho, 27, spent just one season in Greece with AEK after signing permanent deal following a successful loan move and joins Malaga for €900,000.

"Malaga Club de Futbol and AEK have reached a deal for the striker Arnaldo Edi Lopes Da Silva, known as Edinho, to join the Spanish club," the Malaga website stated.

Luque has also joined the club after he spent last term on a temporary basis with Malaga and revelled in his return to Spanish football.

The former Mallorca and Deportivo star struggled to perform in England with Newcastle United and then in Holland with Ajax and after returning to the Amsterdam Arena briefly this month, he was released.

Edinho began his career with Vitoria Setubal in Portugal before having spells with Almada, Barreirense, Braga, Pacos Ferreira and Gil Vicente before returning to his first side.
