Tigres UANL’s Ikechukwu Uche has joined Malaga on loan until the end of the season.
The 32-year-old joined the Mexican topflight from Villarreal on a three-year deal in 2015 but his fine start was cut short after coping an injury in a Concacaf Champions League game against El Salvador’s Isidro Metapan in September 2015.
The forward will now spend the remainder of the season with the Andalusian side, who are 10th in La Liga.
Uche was presented to the club fans on Tuesday by 1pm Nigerian time.
