Another Old Man Finds His Way Home

Having pasted his medical exam 34 year old Fabricio Fuentes will be presented today as the first reinforcement at Newell's Old Boys for the up coming Clausura. Technically the player still belongs to Atlas, but he himself negotiated a six month loan deal to bring rejoin the team that gave him his start.

With the defender on board, Newell's are now concentrating on prying Claudio Bieler away from Racing Club. Reports are that the team have set a deadline of next week to bring Bieler into the squad. If that is not possible, they will turn their eye toward Darío Gandín, who is currently with Necaxa of Mexico.

No other additions are expected, though coach Roberto Sensini has made comments that with Mauro Fórmica gone a new playmaker is needed.
