Spanish outfit Real Oviedo have reinforced their squad with their signing of Kenya international McDonald Mariga.

Mariga, who won the 2009/10 UEFA Champions League title with Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan, has been on books of Italian Serie B side U.S Latina Calcio.

The central defensive has now joined Oviedo, who are campaigning in the Segunda Division, which is the second tier of Spanish football.

A club statement read: "Real Oviedo has come to an agreement to contract the services of center midfielder McDonald Mariga, "Mariga", for the coming season."

The 30-year-old, who is a former Parma midfielder, will be keen to help Oviedo secure promotion to the Spanish La Liga.

"The player will join training sessions immediately, after having passed medical examinations in the Clínica Asturias.

"He will work under the directions of Juan Antonio Anquela beginning this afternoon in order to be completely ready for the coach when the season begins," another club statement read.

Mariga made 28 Serie B apperances for Latina last season.
