Malaga Win Race To Sign Caicedo



Spanish relegation candidates Malaga have agreed a deal to take Manchester City striker Felipe Caicedo on loan until the end of the season, in a bid to keep them up. Hull had also shown an interest in signing the 21-year-old.

Following a poor run of games after Sven-Goran Eriksson originally signed him from Basel in January 2008, Caicedo started to impress under Mark Hughes, notching up a reasonable tally of eight goals in 23 games for the Blues.

His time in Lisbon has not been so fruitful however, the promising young Ecuadorian having no goals to his name this season.

Jan 08 Manchester City 10 games 0 goals
08-09 Manchester City 23 games 8 goals
09-10 Sporting Lisbon 7 games 0 goals

Malaga boss Juan Ramon Lopez Muniz stated: 'He's [Caicedo] had a different training session (to the other players). He's gone days without training and will be gradually incorporated into the group. The important thing is that he integrates as quickly as possible.'

Caicedo has passed a medical and will be presented to the press on moday.

I'm really surprised that after Sporting Lisbon wanted to cancel Caicedo's loan that Mancini didn't bring him back to City and have a look at him in action - I mean even Benjani got a match last week. I think that I can see a pattern emerging with Caicedo - He struggled when he first came to England, got better in the 2nd half of his 2nd season, struggled in Portugal and I hope that he now doesn't go and struggle in Spain. I think that he needs to be settled in 1 place and to get matches here in the Premier League whether it be for City or another club to see him at his best.

Completely agree, i thought he should have gone to Hull so he can get back to a familiar league and do well there. Malaga are on the verge of relegation so I can hardly see him getting much service up front. If he does well there- its a miracle and we should get him back ASAP!!

He's still a kid, if a massive bloke and all these changes from Basle to City to Lisbon to Malaga cannot be helping his career.
Johnny Baguette
that's the trouble when you're rich - you pick up the good, the bad and in his case - the downright ugly!
