Racing Santander have completed the signing of defender Pablo Pinillos.Racing Santander have completed the signing of defender Pablo Pinillos and are closing in on further captures.
The 30-year-old joins as a free agent having come to the end of his contract with Levante.
He made more than 30 appearances for the Valencia-based side last term, but has opted to move on following their relegation.
Racing are also lining up an ambitious move for Internazionale star Stephane Dalmat as well as Elche striker Nino.
Despite the potentially high cost of the operation to land former Tottenham man Dalmat, Racing are convinced the profile he would bring to the club would justify the deal.
Meanwhile, the Cantabrians have submitted an é¼800,000 offer for Nino but look likely to be rebuffed.
Elche are holding out for around é¼2 million, but a compromise deal seems on the cards with Racing offering Brazilian Arturo as part of the transfer.
