Guayre to aid Celta challenge

RC Celta de Vigo have started strengthening for next season's UEFA Cup by snapping up Spain midfielder Antonio Guayre from Villarreal CF.

High hopes
Celta say the 26-year-old has agreed a three-year contract and will move on a free transfer after five seasons at El Madrigal. The Galician side, who returned to the top flight for the 2005/06 campaign, are back in European football after finishing sixth in the Primera División. "I've come from Villarreal who have also been playing in Europe and I hope I can get the continuity I didn't get there," Guayre said. "What I want to do is play, and if Celta have shown the interest to sign me then I don't want to let them down."
