OFFICIAL: Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin joins Valladolid on loan

Real Madrid confirm that goalkeeper Andriy Lunin has joined Valladolid on a season-long loan deal.

The Ukrainian made just four La Liga appearances for Leganes last campaign, but it had been thought he could be afforded more opportunities next season.

Indeed, it had been thought that the shot-stopper would return to Lega next campaign but Valladolid then moved ahead in negotiations and have now completed his signing.

The two clubs share a strong relationship at boardroom level with Valladolid headed by former Madrid striker Ronaldo Nazario, a close friend of his Los Blanos counterpart Florentino Perez.

Lunin joined Los Blancos last summer in an €8m deal from Zorya but was never likely to be involved in first-team action following the arrival of Thibaut Courtois to compete with Keylor Navas and Luca Zidane.
