Goalkeeper Roberto completes Alaves switch

WEST HAM UNITED have announced that goalkeeper, Roberto, has moved to Spanish Primera Division club Deportivo Alaves until the conclusion of the current campaign.

The 33-year-old has made eight appearances for the Hammers this season – standing in for the injured Lukasz Fabianski. However, the former Espanyol stopper endured a troubled spell between the posts, making a series of high-profile blunders which saw him lose his place to David Martin and then Darren Randolph.

The Madrid-born player could feature for Alaves against Villarreal this weekend.
