The Málaga CF player will be on loan during the 2016/17 season to Sporting Clube de Braga, following the agreement reached between the Blue and Whites and the Portuguese club.
The 21-year old Portuguese player, who arrived at La Rosaleda two seasons ago from Vitoria de Setúbal, returns to his home country’s league competition two years later. During his two seasons with Málaga CF, Horta took part in 48 League and eight Copa del Rey matches, scoring three goals.
Horta started out in the youth ranks of Benfica, before being transferred to Vitoria de Setúbal’s reserve team in 2011. In 2012/13, he made his first team debut, and two years later moved to the Blue and Whites, where he signed a five-year contract.
