Next Match: away to Real Betis, December 21
Hernan Pellerano has left Almeria to join Mexican club Tijuana with immediate effect. The Argentinian defender has spent the last six years at the Andalusian club and told its official website he was "very grateful to Almeria for facilitating the move", as he will now get to play in the same team as his brother Christian. He added: "This is a decision that has been taken with a heavy heart and for family reasons. My brother and I have always wanted to play together and now we have the opportunity to do that. However, I have deep feelings for this club and I am very sad to leave." Top scorer Rodri is expected to return to the squad to face Real Betis after missing the last three weeks with an ankle problem.
