Powerful defender Yrondu Musava-King is set to be the second summer signing by Granada.

The pace of signings at Granada is starting to come thick and fast. Following the capture of winger Edgar Mendez on Wednesday, local newspaper Ideal Granada have declared the next will be defender, Yrondu Musava-King.

An international with Gabon, the 23-year-old will arrive at Nuevo Los Carmenes on a free-transfer, after his contract expired with French outfit, Stade Malherbe Caen.

With the reports suggesting Musava-King has agreed a five-year deal at Nuevo Los Carmenes, he is described and "strong physically, powerful in the air and a capable marker of opponents."

The move by Granada appears to have the hallmarks of Gino Pozzo, following considerable speculation in France over recent months, that Udinese were set to move for the central defender, along with suggestions he could head to Watford.

However, it is with Granada firmly in mind that the deal has been struck, bearing in mind that they need defensive reinforcements, following the recent departure of Colombian international, Jeison Murillo, who has moved on to Italy with Inter Milan.

Granada are clearly keen to get much of their main transfer business done, before the squad returns from holidays and heads into pre-season training, at the orders of manager Jose Ramon Sandoval.
