Sorín signing bolsters Villarreal

Argentina defender Juan Pablo Sorín has joined Spanish side Villarreal CF on a free transfer.

Argentinian international Juan Pablo Sorín has joined Spanish UEFA Cup contenders Villarreal CF on a three-and-a-half year deal.

Free transfer
Sorin, 28, arrives on a free transfer from Cruzeiro EC, the Brazilian club he joined from CA River Plate in 2000, but who subsequently loaned him to S.S. Lazio, FC Barcelona and, last season, Paris Saint-Germain FC. The wing-back, a member of Argentina's Copa América-winning squad last summer, will help fill the gap caused by injuries to Villarreal's left-sided midfielders Javier Calleja and Roger García.
