Alaves complete deal for Manchester City striker

Alaves have completed a deal for Manchester City striker Ruben Sobrino, the club has confirmed.

The 25-year-old forward spent a loan spell with the Basque side last season but only made five appearances, scoring twice.

However, those performances have been enough to warrant a permanent move back to La Liga from Premier League parent club Man City.

Sobrino, a Real Madrid youth graduate left Spanish football in 2015 but failed to make an appearance for the Manchester-based club.

A loan spell with Catalan side Girona later followed before he moved to Alaves on loan in 2016.

Having now agreed on a move to the Mendizorrotza – Sobrino will sign a four-year contract at the club.
