Derry City are delighted to announce the signing of Spanish defender Cristian Castells.
The 31-year-old centre-back, who is a former Valencia youth team player, has signed a short term deal until the end of the season.
Boss Kenny Shiels was delighted to have added the big defender to his squad.
“Cristian is a big lad, he’s over 6 foot. He’s technically good, he reads the game well and he’s a fighter, a bit like Ryan McBride, so we’re glad to have him in and he’s come at the right time. Between injuries and a few guys on 4 yellow cards and most of them defenders we’re glad to get the cover and he’s a fantastic asset to have.”
