Transfer News: Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa signs three-year deal at La Liga side Malaga
Last Updated: 01/08/14 5:59pm
Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa has completed a move to La Liga side Malaga.
Ochoa, 29, was one of the outstanding performers at this summer’s World Cup in Brazil and he has signed a three-year contract with the Spanish club.
A statement on Malaga's website read: "Malaga has reached an agreement to sign one of the best goalkeepers of the recent World Cup in Brazil, Francisco Guillermo Ochoa Magaña."
Ochoa, who is due to be unveiled later on Friday, was a free agent after his contract with relegated Ligue 1 side AC Ajaccio expired this summer.
The keeper had spent three seasons with Ajaccio before surprisingly being chosen as Mexico's first-choice keeper at the World Cup.
He helped Miguel Herrera's side reach the last 16, and was outstanding in helping his team hold hosts Brazil to a 0-0 draw during the group stage.
Arsenal were among a number of clubs linked with signing the Mexican after his performances in Brazil, but they opted to sign Colombia keeper David Ospina instead.
Ochoa and his new side Malaga can be seen from August 12 on Sky Sports 5HD, Your New Home of European Football.
