  • Malaga are set to miss out on a major target for the transfer window

Malaga are set to miss out on a major target as Diego Llorente closes in on a move to Real Sociedad.

The central defender, 23, has been on a season-long loan from Real Madrid and had committed to extending that loan for next season.

Real Sociedad, however, have jumped to the head of the queue by proposing a permanent transfer and are about to seal a deal with his parent club.

Malaga are unable to match the transfer fee so must now look at other targets.
