Napoli bring in Ruiz

Napoli have completed their first signing of the January transfer window after Espanyol’s Victor Ruiz joined the club.
Ruiz, 22, is thought of very highly in Spain, where he has represented his country at under-17, under-19 and under-21 levels.
Some of Europe’s biggest clubs were reportedly watching him but Napoli have acted first, snapping him up for €6 million on a four-and-a-half-year contract.
As part of the deal, Espanyol have signed Jesus Datolo on a permanent deal. He had been on loan from Napoli for the past 18 months but had no future in Italy.
Ruiz is expected to slot into Napoli’s three-man defence in place of Gianluca Grava, who has recently been ruled out for the rest of the season. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
