Spanish club Valencia have announced today that a deal has been agreed that will send their Uruguay international midfielder Ignacio Gonzalez to Newcastle United on loan for the coming season.
Ignacio Gonzalez – one year loan at Newcastle reported
The 26-year-old only just signed for the Spanish side in the summer, after being on loan at Monaco, but is seems strange he may already be surplus to requirements. He played for Daniubo since 2002 and played 178 games for them over six seasons, scoring 45 goals.
Vice-President Fernando Gomez said today:
“We have many players who can play in midfield and this is an excellent solution for both sides,”“We expect the formalities to be completed on Monday morning.”
This is a good signing for Newcastle, as we need more players in central midfield, and the reports we have received from our readers suggest that Gonzalez is a skilled and strong playmaker in midfield.
But Ignacio unfortunately will be away on World Cup duty for Uruguay in their South American World Cup qualifiers for almost two weeks.
Uruguay play Colombia and Ecuador on September 6th and 10th respectively, and it could be the Uruguay will be away on World Cup duty quite a lot this season.
The 5’11” midfielder has played 15 times for Uruguay.
Comments very welcome.
