Gimnastic de Tarragona have agreed a deal for Argentine defender Anibal Matellan.
Gimnastic de Tarragona have continued their busy summer of transfer activity by agreeing a deal for Argentine defender Anibal Matellan.
The 29-year-old was available on a free transfer having come to the end of his one-year deal with Getafe.
Although he made a total of 22 appearances for Getafe last term, they opted against offering him a new contract and Nastic have now stepped in.
Matellan has a decent pedigree having had two spells at Boca Juniors which sandwiched a three-year stint at Schalke.
Nastic will be looking for him to add experience and know-how to their back-line as they prepare for what is sure to be a tough season in the Spanish top-flight.
Meanwhile, the Catalan outfit have agreed contract extensions with midfielder Jesus Serrano and striker Antonio Pinilla.
