(REUTERS) - Goalkeeper Willy Caballero has joined Manchester City from Spanish outfit Malaga on a three-year deal, the Premier League champions announced on Tuesday.
The 32-year-old from Argentina will provide competition for England stopper Joe Hart, following the departure of reserve Costel Pantilimon to Sunderland.
"This is a new challenge and a new league for me. I have been doing well in the previous years and my goal is to go on and hopefully perform at the same level for City," Caballero told the club website (www.mcfc.co.uk).
"I know I am coming to a big club with a very good goalkeeper. City already have a great goalkeeper in Joe Hart, but I will try and compete for the No. 1 spot. I will do my best in the training sessions."
