MADRID - Sevilla have signed Chile
midfielder Gary Medel on a four-and-a-half year contract, the
Spanish club said on Monday.
The 23-year-old, known as "Pitbull" for his ferocious
handling of opponents, can play in midfield or defence and has
spent the last year and a half with Boca Juniors.
He has won 28 caps for Chile and played at the World Cup
finals in South Africa last year.
Medel is Sevilla's second recruit of the January transfer
window after Croatia midfielder Ivan Rakitic and the club said
on its website that he would be presented
with his new team-mate later in the day.
Sevilla are preparing for a King's Cup semi-final second leg
at Real Madrid on Wednesday, where they need to overturn a 1-0
deficit if they are to continue the defence of their title.
