Chesterfield have signed experienced Spanish midfielder Angel Martinez.

Known simply as ‘Angel’, the 29-year-old flew in to watch yesterday’s game at Sheffield United and has now agreed a two-year contact.

He was previously with Millwall and Blackpool after starting out at Espanyol in his native country.

Spireites manager Dean Saunders is delighted to have landed Angel.

He said: “We’ve been waiting and waiting to sign him. He’s got good pedigree having played at Espanyol and been capped by Spain at under-21 level.

“He’s good on the ball and he knows the central midfield position. With his experience of English football, I’m sure he’ll make us better.”

Angel’s signing comes soon after the capture of Lee Novak who was signed on a season-long loan from Birmingham City and made his debut in Saturday’s game at Sheffield United.
