Official: Villarreal loan Santos Borre

Villarreal have acted quickly to replace Roberto Soldado by bringing in Atletico Madrid striker Rafael Santos Borre on a season-long loan.

Santos Borre [pictured, right] has yet to appear in an official match for Atleti after only arriving from Colombian side Deportivo Cali last month, although he did appear during preseason.

The 20-year-old joins a Villarreal team in turmoil, the Yellow Submarine having been forced into a sudden change of Coach and lost Soldado to a cruciate ligament injury.
