Malaga signs defender Sanchez from Sevilla

Malaga completed the signing of defender Sergio Sanchez from

Sevilla on Friday.

Sanchez agreed to a four-year deal with Malaga, which did not

release the transfer fee though reports say it was around ?3

million ($4.34 million).

Sanchez returned in January after being sidelined for a year by

a heart condition. The 25-year-old, who underwent surgery to

correct the problem, passed the standard medical to seal the

transfer.

Malaga says Sanchez will be presented Saturday alongside

midfielder Diego Buenanotte, who arrived from Argentine club River

Plate.
