DONE DEAL: Real Madrid sign Deportivo La Coruna striker Noel Lopez

Real Madrid have signed Deportivo La Coruna striker Noel Lopez.

A Spain Under 19 international, Lopez excelled for Deportivo in the Spanish third tier last season, making 28 appearances and scoring four goals.

Depor are battling to recover from dropping out of the Segunda Division.

Lopez is expected to begin life at Real Madrid in the club’s Castilla reserve side.

However with the club having shown an inclination to bring through and sign younger talent, Lopez is expected to start making a case to join the first-team squad before long.
