Official: Napoli sign Ruiz

Napoli have announced that they have completed the signing of Espanyol centre-back Victor Ruiz.

The 21-year-old centre-back joins on loan until the end of the season.

He will then sign on a permanent basis in June, putting pen to paper on a four-year deal.

Jesus Datolo, the Napoli midfielder who has been on loan with Espanyol, will now sign outright for the Spanish club.

Ruiz was in Italy today to take care of the paperwork.

He will return to Barcelona and hold a Press Conference to bid farewell to Espanyol.
