Malaga have completed the signing of Nigerian forward Victor Obinna on a season-long loan from Inter Milan.

Obinna previously attracted interest from Everton and Real Betis but has finally settled on a year with the Primera Division club.

The 22-year-old has reportedly already completed a medical with Malaga and will begin training with his new team-mates on Thursday.

After being used sporadically during his first season at the San Siro, Obinna is hoping to impress as a starter in order to cement his place in Nigeria's World Cup squad.

"I believe that I can succeed in Spain and it is my aim to have a successful year ahead of the 2010 World Cup," he said.

Malaga are not thought to have secured an option for a permanent deal when the loan expires in June of next year.
