  • The club must now focus on offloading players and Álex Mula is the first to depart, sealing a loan move to Alcorcón

Despite there being no permanent head coach currently in place, Malaga have moved in the transfer market this week. The loan arrival of striker Sergio Buenacasa, 23, was announced on Saturday - the club's first arrival this winter window.

The striker joins on loan from Mallorca until the end of the season after his loan to Segunda rivals Ponferradina was cut short over lack of playing time, in part due to injury.

Buenacasa joins with no option to buy.

This comes after attacking midfielder Álex Mula, who has been unable to play this season due to wage cap restrictions, was loaned out to Alcorcón.
