Malaga have confirmed the signing of Paris St Germain defender Diego Lugano on loan until the end of the season.

Lugano, a Uruguay international with 72 caps, has seen his opportunities at the Parc des Princes limited this season, with Thiago Silva, Zoumana Camara and Mamadou Sakho ahead of him in the pecking order.

PSG boss Carlo Ancelotti was keen to pay tribute to the 32-year-old, who joined the current Ligue 1 leaders in 2011 from Fenerbahce after spending five years with the Turkish giants.

"Lugano has gone to Malaga, where he will surely have more game time," Ancelotti told PSG's official website.

"I want to emphasise that he was very professional. This is a good lesson for the whole group because he worked every day with great professionalism. Diego has set an example."

Malaga are currently fifth in La Liga and will hope the experience of Lugano will help them push for a European place.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
