Sevilla signs Argentine defender Fazio

Sevilla signs Argentine defender Fazio

Sevilla has signed teenage Argentine defender Federico Fazio from Ferro Carril Oeste on a five-year contract.
Fazio's contract will carry a euro15 million (US$19.5 million) buy-out clause, Sevilla said Thursday.
As Ferro Carril Oeste is currently in receivership, a Buenos Aires court ruled that it should accept Sevilla's offer because it was the biggest the Argentine club had received.
Sevilla didn't say how much it had paid for Fazio, an Argentina under-20 international.
Fazio, who will join Sevilla once the South American under-20 championship ends next week, is Sevilla's second signing in January's transfer window. The first was striker Alexander Kerzhakov, who joined from Zenit St. Petersburg.
Sevilla is second in the Spanish league at the halfway stage of the season. The team, which won the UEFA Cup last season, has also reached the last 32 of this season's competition, where it plays Steaua Bucharest next month.
