Marc Muniesa joins Girona permanently after leaving Stoke

Girona have completed the signing of defender Marc Muniesa from Stoke on a three-year permanent deal.

The 26-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at the Spanish side and played 14 times, helping them to finish 10th in La Liga.

Muniesa joined Barcelona as a 15-year-old and made his first-team debut at the Nou Camp at the mere age of 17.

After struggling for game-time in Spain, Muniesa came to the Premier League and joined Stoke in 2013 where he went on to make over 50 appearances.

Muniesa went to Girona on loan in January of this year, and the club have exercised their option to make the deal permanent.
