I moved it to the right forum, so Andy joke will make no sense.

Independiente Sign Chilean Star Medel

Argentine giants Independiente have confirmed the signing of exceptional Chilean international Gary Medel from Universidad Catolica...

Chilean defender Gary Medel was confirmed as the latest incorporation of Independiente, after agreeing on a lucrative deal on Thursday afternoon.

Medel, who was voted the 2008 Chilean Player of the Year, will reinforce the Avellaneda club for the Argentine Clausura Championship next season.

Independiente acquired 50 percent of the player's rights, after long negotiations, that came to an end just hours ago. Medel, 21, is likely to be officially presented by the club in Avellaneda next week.

The former Universidad Catolica player was the second signing of the club this season. Their first was former River Plate captain Eduardo Tuzzio.

Having sealed the transfer, Independiente will now concentrate on signing FC Porto midfielder Mario Bolatti.

Independiente are currently participating in a pre-season competition, along with fellow Buenos Aires clubs River Plate, Boca Juniors, San Lorenzo, and fierce rivals Racing Club. Los Diablos Rojos will clash with Boca next Tuesday in Salta, and will face San Lorenzo three days later.
