  • With sporting director Mario Husillos still assessing options, it is unlikely that the Nigerian striker will be the last incoming player this window

As deadline day draws closers, Malaga remain active on all fronts. On Monday, they announced the loan signing of striker Brown Ideye who has agreed a move from Chinese club Tianjin Teda

The former West Bromwich Albion forward passed his medical on Wednesday but negotiations took longer than expected with the player's numerous representatives.

The Nigerian, 29, whose move to China didn't pay off, returns to Europe where he has had something of a nomadic career, representing the likes of Dinamo Kiev, Olympiakos and WBA.

Known for his strength, Malaga hope he will be able to lead the line, once he returns to full fitness.

Ideye is the latest of a number of signings, with Ignasi Miquel, Manuel Iturra, Alberto Bueno and Samuel García already signing up this window.

He may not be the last incoming player either, with Malaga assessing their options in midfield should moves for Esteban Rolón, Javi Ontiveros or Mula be found.
