Derby County’s Raul Albentosa has joined Spanish La Liga side Deportivo de La Coruña on a permanent basis for an undisclosed fee.

Following discussions with Deportivo, who finished 15th in the Spanish top flight last season, Albentosa has completed a permanent move to Estadio Riazor for an undisclosed fee.

The 27-year-old central defender spent the entire 2015/16 campaign on loan at their fellow La Liga outfit Malaga in a season-long loan deal.

He made 31 appearances in total during his loan spell and scored twice, including an equaliser in a 1-1 draw at home to Real Madrid.

After joining Derby from Eibar in January 2015, Albentosa appeared nine times in the second half of the 2014/15 season.

Derby County would like to wish the player every success in the future and thank him for his service to the club.
