Barcelona loan forward Munir to Alaves

Munir El Haddadi has left Barcelona to join Deportivo Alaves on a season-long loan deal.

The 22-year-old forward was not considered part of Ernesto Valverde's first-team plans at Camp Nou and a host of clubs, both in LaLiga and abroad, were registered with an interest in the forward during the transfer window.

Ajax, Roma and Zenit were all linked with a move for the Spaniard, who scored six goals in 33 LaLiga appearances while on loan at Valencia last season.
