Celta Vigo midfielder Alex Lopez has confirmed his departure to Sheffield Wednesday.
Lopez has since confirmed via his Twitter page he is leaving the club, thanking the Celta Vigo fans for their support, and posting a goodbye note explaining his imminent move to Sheffield Wednesday, in which he verifies it is for a loan agreement.
Non é un adeus, só un ata logo. Moitas gracias afección // No es un adiós, es un hasta luego. Muchas gracias afición pic.twitter.com/UJgnQUiaOh— Álex López (@alexlopezs8) July 9, 2015
Alex Lopez played 25 La Liga games for the Spanish side last season, who finished eighth in the top flight.
While pending confirmation from the club themselves, he stands to be the second big signing at Hillsborough in as many days, after Marco Matias was bought from Nacional.
Lopez is a former Spanish under-17 international and is a central midfielder who has played more than 200 games in his homeland.
