  • The club could have more room for manoeuvre in January with Diego Rolán, Roberto Rosales and Adalberto Peñaranda all about to have their Spanish nationality confirmed

Malaga's hand in the winter transfer window could be strengthened with all three of their non-EU players on the verge of getting their Spanish nationality confirmed.

La Liga clubs are allowed a maximum of three non-EU players each per squad, places currently occupied by Venezuelans Roberto Rosales and Adalberto Peñaranda, and Uruguayan Diego Rolán.

If one, or indeed all, receive Spanish nationality before the end of the transfer window, it would allow Malaga to sign players from South America - a region their scouts know well and one where bargains can be found.
