Deportivo Alavés have moved to solve their striking crisis by signing the Romanian international Adrian Ilie.
Out of favour
Ilie heads to the Mendizorroza on a free transfer after he was released by Valencia CF at the end of last season. The 28-year-old had fallen out of favour at the Mestalla after failing to score in ten games, but will look to resurrect his career at a club who struggled for goals last term.
José Manuel Esnal's side found the net just 41 times in 38 league games, with Magno their top scorer with seven. First-choice forward Ruben Navarro registered only four times.
