After a fortnight of scrutiny and uncertainty, Deportivo La Coruña have announced that Sulley Muntari will join the club until the end of the season with an option for a further year.

Valverde injury leads Depor to Muntari

The 33-year-old Ghana international has been on trial in Galicia since February 9th. Depor's interest in making Muntari's stay permanent intensified when fellow midfielder Fede Valverde picked up a thigh injury in the defeat to Real Betis. Valverde will be injured for at least a month, prompting Seedorf to recruit Muntari in the squad place vacated by Alcorcón-bound winger Bruno Gama. 

Depor face a tough run in LaLiga, with matches against Espanyol, Getafe, Eibar, Girona, and Las Palmas in the next few weeks.

Muntari - who played alongside Seedorf at AC Milan - is available for selection against Espanyol on Friday evening, having trained with the main group during the last week.
