Roberto: West Ham goalkeeper joins Alaves on loan
Last Updated: 20/01/20 12:42pm
West Ham goalkeeper Roberto has joined La Liga side Alaves on loan until the end of the season.
His departure comes on the back of the Hammers re-signing goalkeeper Darren Randolph from Middlesbrough, as well as having number one Lukas Fabianski closing on a return from injury.
The goalkeeper heads to the Basque country having made 10 appearances in all competitions this season - eight in the Premier League and two in the Carabao Cup.
A statement on the West Ham website read: "We wish Roberto all the very best for his loan spell."
Roberto signed last summer on a two-year deal as cover for Fabianski but was brought into the West Ham first team in September after the Poland international suffered a hip injury.
A series of high-profile errors however led to Roberto being replaced in the team by David Martin.
It is a return to La Liga for the 33-year-old who moved to the Premier League from Espanyol.
He could make his debut at home to Villarreal on Saturday evening.
