CA Osasuna have confirmed the signings of CG Tarragona forward Javier Portillo and Switzerland striker Xavier Margairaz from FC Zürich.

Relegation
Portillo, a former Real Madrid CF prodigy, said: "I have been very happy at Tarragona and would have liked to stay if they'd remained in the first division, but it wasn't to be and I think the fans will understand the reason for my departure, which is the best for me and the club." The 25-year-old has signed a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee. Margairaz, 23, has agreed a three-season stay having won the Swiss championship for two campaigns running.
