Mallorca announce Bruno China capture

Defender moving to Spain

Mallorca have confirmed the signing of Leixoes defender Bruno China, who has agreed a three-year deal with the La Liga outfit.

Negotiations between the clubs had been ongoing this week, with the parties believed to be some way apart in their valuation of the 27-year-old. However, Mallorca today announced on their website the capture of the defender, who becomes their first signing ahead of the 2009/10 season.

The move brings an end to China’s nine-year spell in the Leixoes first team, having come through the ranks at the Matosinhos club. Mallorca have not disclosed the amount paid for the player, but the fee is thought to be somewhere in the region of 400,000 euros.

China is expected at the ONO Estadi on Monday to carry out routine medical examinations before sealing the transfer. He joins Jose Nunes at the Barralets, with the former Braga stopper currently the vice-captain at the club following a highly successful three-and-a-half years in Palma.
