Spanish champions Deportivo Coruna took their summer spending to over 21m when they signed highly-rated striker Diego Tristan from Real Mallorca.

Tristan has agreed an eight-year contract as Deportivo prepare for a first-ever appearance in the Champions League.

The striker's proposed move to Real Madrid fell through when former president Lorenzo Sanz was voted out of the Bernabeu, but he is happy with the way his move has worked out.

"I'm delighted to be going to a big club. This is a big step for me," said Tristan, who scored 12 league goals for Mallorca last term.

Deportivo have now added eight players to their title-winning squad, including goalkeeper Jose Molina and midfielder Juan Carlos Valeron from Atletico Madrid, both members of Spain's Euro 2000 squad.

The only major sale has been that of Brazilian midfielder Flavio Conceicao to Real Madrid for around 15m.
