After Premier League side Everton snapped up Sandro Ramirez, Malaga as of now have his substitution, the club has signed Borja Baston on loan from Swansea after the player had a successful medical on Tuesday.
Baston came through the academy at Atletico Madrid and touches base on the Costa del Sol to deliver goals for the Boquerones, something he failed to do at Swansea.
The deal is a season-long loan but it is understood that there is no alternative to buy as is frequently the case with these arrangements.
The 24-year-old was unable to score in 18 appearances for Swansea last season but proved he can do it in Spain in spells at Deportivo, Zaragoza and Eibar.
Truth be told, at Eibar, Baston scored 18 goals in La Liga and was only two behind Athletic Bilbao striker Aritz Aduriz who finished as the top-scoring Spaniard in the division that season with 20.
Current Malaga players Keko and Adrian are both former teammates of Baston’s and probably they’ll be seeking after an effective reunion at the Rosaleda.
