Mallorca signs Dos Santos from Tottenham

Mallorca has signed Giovani Dos Santos from Tottenham on a

four-year deal, and Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente’s is

waiting to see where he will end up on transfer deadline day.

Dos Santos is the first significant move made by Mallorca since

being barred from 2010 Europa League over financial difficulties.

The Mexico forward previously played in Spain for Barcelona and

Racing Santander.

Llorente, who is out of contract at the end of the season,

hasn’t played for Bilbao as the Basque club waits to see if any

European team will pay the Spain international’s ?36 million ($45

million) buy-out clause.

Malaga signed Javier Saviola from Benfica and Chile midfielder

Manuel Iturra from Leiria, while promoted Celta Vigo took Arsenal

striker Park Chu-young on loan for the season.
