Espanyol have signed goalkeeper Diego Lopez on a permanent basis from AC Milan following a successful season on loan in LaLiga.
The 35-year-old has signed a three-year deal, tying him to Espanyol until June 2020, with a buyout clause of €50million.
Lopez made 35 appearances for Quique Sanchez Flores' team in Spain's top flight this term, conceding 38 goals and keeping 11 clean sheets.
"It's a very happy day for me. We've only had one season, but it's been wonderful," the former Real Madrid, Villarreal and Sevilla keeper told Espanyol's official website.
"I thank the club, the coach, the coaching staff, the team-mates and the fans, and I wanted to stay here, it was my priority."
