Getafe have signed young duo Alexis Ruano and Nacho from relegated side Malaga.
Getafe have pulled off a double coup over relegated Liga side Malaga, with the signing of young guns Alexis Ruano and Nacho.
Under-21 international defender Alexis (pictured) has been contracted on a five-year deal at Alfonso Perez, while midfielder Nacho has signed for four years.
Both players came through the ranks at Malaga and were two of the few bright sparks in the club's relegation last season.
Twenty-four-year-old Nacho and his 20-year-old team-mate each started more than 30 league games, scoring six goals between them.
Coach Bernd Schuster has invested in the youthful duo, as he looks to push the team into one of the European qualifying spots next year.
He could soon add to the squad further with the signing of Boca Juniors' goalkeeper Roberto Abbondazieri, but will have to wait until after the World Cup to make a formal approach for the Argentinian international.
