SPANISH ace Alex Navajas says he is excited to be “back home” after re-joining Worcester Wolves for the remainder of the campaign.

The 6ft 7in forward spent the two previous seasons at Wolves, captaining the team to the BBL Cup final last term.

He averaged 10.8 points, 6.6 rebound and 3.2 assists per game throughout the 2017-18 campaign.

The 32-year-old’s efforts afforded him the opportunity to begin this season at French NM1 club L’union Lourdes-Tarbes Pyrenees Basket.

But Navajas has now returned to Wolves and will replace Filip Kramer who handed in his resignation earlier this week.

Navajas will fly to the UK tonight and the club are hoping to have his international clearance ready for the game against British Basketball League leaders London Lions at the University of Worcester Arena on Friday night (7.30pm).

“I’m happy and excited to go back home,” Navajas said.

“I am coming to the team to help in every way I can!

“I know that we are in a difficult situation, but it’s not impossible.

“I’m sure that with the help of the fans we will get ahead.”

Managing director Mick Donovan added: “Following the unexpected departure of Filip at this stage of the season, we needed to find a replacement who can add strength as a player and as a person and Alex will certainly do that.

“We are delighted to have him back during this challenging time.”
