Former Derby County player Alberto Bueno has signed for the tenth club of his career after the free agent penned a deal with Greek side Volos.

The 32-year-old attacker was a free agent after leaving Boavista last summer.

Bueno missed out on a move before the October deadline, meaning he had to wait until the January transfer window to sign a deal with a new club.

According to the club’s official site, his next stop is the Greek top-flight with Volos.

Bueno came through the youth ranks at Spanish giants Real Madrid. He was highly rated as a youngster and made an interesting move to Derby on loan under Nigel Clough.

Supporters at Pride Park were excited to see Bueno in action. And there was a spell, which coincided with Shefti Kuqi playing upfront, which saw Derby win eight out of 11 games.

Bueno was at the heart of Derby’s exciting attacking play, prompting then coach Gary Crosby to laud his ‘outstanding ability’ in an interview with the Telegraph.

As soon as winter set in, however, Bueno and Derby’s form took a hit.

The Rams struggled for the remainder of the 2010-11 campaign, finishing on 49 points which has been their lowest points tally in the Championship since their return in 2008.

Bueno, who was a former Spain U21 international, went on to have spells at Real Valladolid, Rayo Vallecano, Granada, Malaga, Leganes and Porto among others.

His last spell was at another Portuguese club in Boavista before becoming a free agent.

Volos have performed above expectations in the Greek Super League this season, currently sitting in seventh spot having suffered only three defeats to date.
