Hyderabad: Reigning Indian Super League (ISL) champions Hyderabad FC on Friday signed Spanish midfielder Borja Herrera ahead of the upcoming season.

The 29-year-old joins the club on a one-year deal.

"This is a very good opportunity for me. Hyderabad FC is a great project with great fans and are currently the champions. I cannot wait to take on this new challenge," Herrera in a statement.

Herrera started his career with the academy in the Canary Islands. He was a part of the squad at Anexo Del Estadio Gran Canaria during head coach Manolo Marquez's time.

He has been effective across all domestic leagues in Spain and has also spent a season in Israel with Maccabi Netanya.

"Borja (Herrera) is a complete and technically gifted player. From centre-back to centre-midfield, from a box-to-box role to playing as a winger, he is an effective option in the squad," said HFC coach Marquez.
