Ideye joins La Liga side Malaga

Malaga have announced the signing of Nigeria international Brown Ideye following a successful medical at Vithas Salud Rincon Medical Center Rosaleda.

The agreement between Malaga and Chinese club Tianjin Teda will see Ideye remain on loan at the Spanish La Liga side until the end of the 2017-2018 season.

With the World Cup approaching, the former West Brom man had to look for a new employer after he was demoted to the reserve team of Tianjin Teda.

He is the second Super Eagles striker to make a return to Europe from China in the January transfer window, following in the footsteps of Anthony Ujah who joined Mainz 05.

Neuchatel Xamax, FC Sochaux, Dynamo Kyiv and Olympiacos FC are the other teams Ideye has represented outside the shores of this country.

The 29-year-old scored two goals in a friendly against Málaga CF during the 2013/14 campaign.
