Swansea City Striker Borja Baston Joins Malaga On Season Long Loan

Swansea City have confirmed that striker Borja Baston has signed for Malaga on a season-long loan.

The 24-year-old has endured a difficult time since arriving in Wales for a club record fee of £15.5m from Atletico Madrid last summer, scoring only once.

The Spaniard almost left Swansea in January to join Villarreal on loan, but a deal collapsed during the final stages of talks.

Malaga, who finished 11th in La Liga last season, wanted a replacement for Sandro Ramirez who has joined Everton.

Borja made 18 Premier League appearances in the 2016/17 season, just four of which were starts and featured twice in the cups.

His one Swans goal came in the 3-2 defeat at Arsenal last October.

Baston’s move to Malaga will see him join on loan for the season, but there is also the option for him to join them permanently for £10.5m next summer.
