Raul Albentosa has only started seven Championship games for Derby since joining in January

Derby County centre-half Raul Albentosa has joined La Liga side Malaga on a season-long loan deal.

The 26-year-old Spaniard joined from Eibar in January for an undisclosed fee but only made a total of nine appearances for the Rams.

Manager Paul Clement said the move was a "good fit".

"I think he struggled to adapt a bit, particularly culturally, so this move is good for him. He's going to a good club," Clement told the club website.

"He will have a positive experience there and we will monitor him very closely. He's still a Derby County player and we hope he does very well."
