Promising Rojo set to join Spartak

FC Spartak Moskva will be the winter destination for 20-year-old Argentinian defender Marcos Rojo who will complete a move from Club Estudiantes LP during the transfer window.

UEFA Champions League group stage contenders FC Spartak Moskva have agreed to sign Club Estudiantes LP defender Marcos Rojo, with the 20-year-old heading to Russia once the winter transfer window opens.

Centre-back Rojo will undergo a medical on 20 November before signing up with coach Valeri Karpin's side and then completing the formalities of the move at the turn of the year.

The left-footed player has scored twice in 35 Argentinian league games for Estudiantes since making his Primera División debut in 2008. The newcomer has a good chance of competing in the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds if Spartak choose to register him, with the Moscow club lying second in Group F ahead of their match at Chelsea FC.
