Stuani drops Depor for Espanyol

Uruguayan striker Christian Stuani has turned down the chance to join Deportivo de La Coruna in favour of Espanyol.

The Catalan club have confirmed the arrival of the 25-year-old for an undisclosed fee on a four-year contract from Italian side Reggina.

Stuani, who has spent the past three seasons on loan in Spain with Albacete, Levante and Racing Santander respectively, was being tracked by Deportivo this summer too.

His agent had reportedly held negotiations with the Galicians and the player had already passed a medical, but it is understood that he pulled the plug at the last minute, in favour of Espanyol’s advances.
