In: SEBASTIAN COATES NION
Liverpool FC have confirmed the 6th capture of this exciting summer transfer window, just 24 hours before its closure, with the arrival of 20 year old Uruguayan international centre-back Sebastian ‘Luganito’ Coates (Co-at-es). The 6ft 6inch colossus arrives from Nacional for a reported Stg 7 million deal and has signed a long term contract on the same model adopted by the Reds with the other January and summer transfer acquisitions. The word is that Luis Suarez triggered this deal by speaking to the Liverpool management team about him and by giving the young lad an introduction which made him refuse advances from Man City and Atletico Madrid.
No more signings are predicted for this window, but then you never know…….!
Welcome aboard Sebastian!
