The defender will play in Anderlecht on a loan deal
Lisandro Magallán is a 27-year-old central defender from Argentina. With the Boca Juniors, he managed to win the title in 2018 and he also reached the final of the Copa Libertadores. In 2019, Magallán sealed a permanent move to Ajax.
At the start of the 2019-2020 season, Magallán was loaned to Spanish side Alavés. Last season, the defender played for the Italian FC Crotone in Serie A. This season, Magallán played in all the games during the preparation with Ajax, including the one against RSC Anderlecht. He was always part of the selection in the Dutch competition as well. In the end, he will be wearing the purple and white jersey for the next year.
"With the loss of Hannes Delcroix, we temporarily lose a young yet experienced player in the heart of our defense", our Sports Director Peter Verbeke explains. "Our confidence in other young players like Taylor Harwood-Bellis and Zeno Debast is firm, but experience and competition are also important elements in a long season. The arrival of Lisandro can only contribute to that.”
