Andreu Fontas: Signs for Celta Vigo

The 23-year-old centre-back will hope to play regular football after signing a three-year deal with the Galician club on Thursday, with Barcelona reserving a buy-back option as well as rights on any future transfer.

Fontas was promoted from the Catalan club's B team in 2011, but a serious knee injury the following year hampered his chances of breaking into the first team and last season he was loaned out to Real Mallorca, with whom he made nine appearances.

"Celta have chosen me and that made me decide to come and sign a three-year contract," he said on Celta's official website.

Celta Vigo managed to avoid relegation from La Liga on the final day of last season and have turned to former Barca midfielder Luis Enrique as their coach for the next campaign.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
