Sevilla FC have signed David Cobeño from Real Madrid CF and Duda from Málaga CF as they build towards defending the UEFA Cup.

Keeper in
Cobeño will provide cover for goalkeeper Andrés Palop after signing a three-year contract. The 24-year-old came through the youth ranks at Rayo Vallecano before joining SD Ponferradina and, last summer, Madrid, where he conceded 26 goals in 30 games for the club's reserves. Sevilla are still planning to sign Switzerland goalkeeper Diego Benaglio from CD Nacional this week, however.

Free transfer
Portuguese midfielder Duda, 26, will arrive on a free transfer and will sign a four-year contract on Tuesday having spent five years at Málaga including a loan at Levante UD in 2002/03. Sevilla also announced that David Prieto and Marco Navas will spend next season on loan to second division Xerez CD.
