Relief for Garitano

Kakuta joins Ola John and are they are the final pieces of the jigsaw puzzle for Depor, who were in need of replacing Ryan Babel this winter. Thus, Garitano will have have 23 players at his disposal after the departure of Babel and selling Borja Valle to Elche. 

The French winger has oodles of experience in LaLiga compared to Ola John but will compete with the Dutchman for the wide position.
