  • The players' contracts were due to expire at the end of June but they will now see out the rest of the current campaign

One of the biggest dilemmas facing Malaga, on the field at least, has been that of players whose contracts or loans have been set to expire. Significant progress has been made this week in that regard with defender Luis Muñoz, winger Aarón Ñíguez and defender David Lombán extending their contracts until the end of the season.

On-loan forwards Armando Sadiku and Sergio Buenacasa have also extended their loans from Levante and Mallorca, respectively, primarily because they would have been ineligible for their parent clubs this season anyway.

Doubts still persist, however, over the future of defender Mikel - a free agent from 30 June.
