The Blues have secured the deal on a free and the 26-year-old signs a three-year deal at St Andrew’s with an option for another year.

Signing a new goalkeeper was a priority for Aitor Karanka at the Midlands side, with the club having no senior goalkeeper up until today after Lee Camp was released from his contract at the club, and Connal Trueman was loaned out to League One side AFC Wimbledon.

Prieto has played for a number of Spanish clubs having featured from Real Madrid’s B and C sides before moves to Espanyol, Malaga and then back to Espanyol.

The goalkeeper though has not featured heavily at all in first-team fixtures in the last few seasons, having made just seven appearances in the last three seasons.

Many seem to think that Prieto will just be utilised as back-up judging by the social media response also.
