Alaves sign Swansea striker Borja Baston on season-long loan deal

The striker has scored just once in the league for Swansea.

Swansea striker Borja Baston has joined Alaves on a season-long loan.

Subject to international clearance, the 25-year-old will spend a second straight campaign on loan in LaLiga, having played for Malaga in 2017-18.

Borja – who joined Swansea for a club record £15.5million from Atletico Madrid in 2016 – moves to Alaves after they finished 14th in the Spanish top flight last season.

He was relegated with Malaga last season and has made just four league starts for the Swans.
