Manchester United winger Facundo Pellistri has completed a loan move to Spanish club Alaves for the remainder of the season.
The Uruguayan signed for the Old Trafford club in the summer of 2020 and has made a series of impressive appearances for their Under-23 side over the last few months.
Pellistri will now head to La Liga in a bid to gain regular first-team experience and make the next few steps in his development.
The youngster has a five-year contract with the Red Devils, with the option to extend for a further year, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said he believes the 19-year-old has a bright future.
Upon his signing, the Norwegian said: “Our scouts have followed Facundo for a long time and we believe that he will be a real talent for the long term.
