Young central defender Julio Pleguezuelo is set to join Nàstic (Club Gimnàstic de Tarragona) on loan for the rest of the season.
The 21 year has been a consistently impressive figure at youth levels, captaining the side on many occasions, but has yet to make the step up to the first team. He travelled to Barcelona today and will sign a deal with the Segunda Division outfit which will keep him there until May.
It’s his second loan spell in as many seasons. Last year he made 15 appearances for Real Mallorca, also in the second tier of Spanish football.
He’s the fifth signing in the January window by the Catalan side who currently sit in 17th place.
Fingers crossed he gets to play some regular football, and good luck to him for the rest of the season.
