Guillermo Ochoa joins Granada CF on loan from Malaga

Soccer: 2016 Copa America Centenario-Mexico at Chile John Hefti-USA TODAY Sports

Granada CF have signed Mexican goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa from Malaga CF on a one-year loan, the Spanish club confirmed on Friday.

Ochoa, 31, moves to the Andalusian-based club on a short-term loan after only two years at Malaga.

The Mexican international made eight Copa del Rey appearances and just 11 La Liga appearances for Malaga, playing second-string to first-choice goalkeeper Carlos Kameni.

Ochoa has previously proven to be one of the outstanding goalkeepers in Mexico’s national team squad and has been the subject of a move away from Malaga for some time now.

Guillermo Ochoa will be officially unveiled on Tuesday following his first training session with the Nazaríes.

Granada finished 16th in the 2015/2016 La Liga standings, narrowing escaping relegation on the penultimate week of the season.

Ochoa is now expected to fight with Oier Olazabal, who was out on loan last season, and Ivan Kelava for the first-choice goalkeeper spot.
