Las Palmas make two signings as Tannane and Artiles depart

Las Palmas have signed Nigeria international midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo on loan from Liga NOS side Feirense until the end of the season.

The Yellows have the option to buy the player at the end of the loan if they wish.

Etebo arrived in Gran Canaria on Tuesday night and underwent his medical on Wednesday afternoon before being presented to the media.

He joined Feirense in 2016 from Nigerian side Warri Wolves and has featured 38 times for the Portuguese side.

The midfielder made his debut for his country in 2013 and featured also for the under 23s in the Africa Cup of Nations, scoring the only goal in a group stage victory over Senegal as well as both goals in their 2-1 win over Algeria in the final which saw them qualify for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro where Etebo scored five times.

His great form saw him named the most promising player of 2015 in Africa at the start of January 2016.

He becomes the sixth signing for Las Palmas in this window, with new boss Paco Jemez also bringing in Gabriel Penalba, Jairo Samperio, Alex Galvez, Nacho Gil and Matias Aguirregaray, with the latter joining yesterday from Tijuana.

Oussama Tannane, one of two players (Loic Remy the other) that new boss Paco Jemez wanted rid of, has had his loan deal terminated and has returned to parent club Saint-Etienne.

Defender Aythami Artiles has also left the club with the centre back agreeing to a termination of his contract. He spent eight seasons in Gran Canaria, playing 275 times.
