Madrid: Spanish club Malaga have signed Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa for a three-year contract after his standout performance at the World Cup.

Ochoa's goalkeeping, including a string of stellar saves in a 0-0 draw with host Brazil, helped Mexico reach the round of 16 at this summer's World Cup.

The 29-year-old Ochoa played for French club AC Ajaccio for the past three seasons but was a free agent.
