In a big move for the 20-year-old, Naumoff has inked a three-year deal with the Spanish Segunda Division outfit.

Naumoff was one of a host of players released by the Sky Blues at the end of the last Hyundai A-League campaign.

Despite starting in the 2015 Grand Final against Melbourne Victory, Naumoff started just eight games last season as he struggled to break into Graham Arnold’s side.

He did feature in six games during the club’s AFC Champions League campaign, scoring two goals as Sydney made the last 16 of the competition for the first time ever.

Naumoff made his senior Sky Blues debut in the opening round of the 2013-14 season, making a total of 44 Hyundai A-League appearances, scoring two goals.
