Malága announce the signing of Luis Hernandez from Leicester City

The Spanish defender spent the 2009/10 and the 2010/11 seasons at Real Madrid Castilla before moving to Sporting Gijon's B team after his contract in the capital expired, before being promoted to Sporting's first team where he played three seasons, the first one being in the Segunda Division.

Premier League move

Hernández moved to Leicester City after their triumphant Premier League campaign last season but has failed to usurp Danny Simpson at right-back.

The Madrid-born Hernández can play at centre-half and right-back and is the second defender Malága have signed this season after Martin Demichelis arrived on a free transfer last week.
