Brown Ideye Joins Malaga On Loan
Nigerian international, Brown Ideye has joined Spanish side, Malaga on loan from Chinese Super League club, Tianjin TEDA until the end of the season.
“Málaga CF have signed Brown Ideye on loan until the end of the season, from the Chinese clubTianjin Teda. The striker has already passed the relevant medical examination at the Vithas Salud Rincon Medical Center Rosaleda,” Malaga announced on their official website.
Malaga will be hoping that Ideye, who has scored just 4 goals in 14 appearances in the Chinese Super League will rediscover top form and help them in what is shaping up to be a stiff relegation fight. Ideye’s stock has plummeted since joining China from Olympiakos where he hit a rich vein of form, scoring 23 goals.
With an eye on making Nigeria’s world cup squad, the 29-year-old knows his chances can only be bolstered by first team football .
Ideye is slowly building a reputation as a journeyman having already played in the French Ligue 1 with FC Sochaux, the Ukrainian League with Dynamo Kiev, the Premier League with West Bromich Albion, Greece with Olympiakos, China with Tianjin TEDA before his loan move to Malaga.
