Getafe secure Lopez on loan
Getafe, Spain (Sports Network) - Getafe have signed Benfica defender Lisandro Lopez on season-long loan, the La Liga side confirmed on Monday.
Benfica bought Lopez from Argentine club Arsenal de Sarandi earlier in the summer, but have elected to send him to Spain to gain valuable first-team experience.
Before making the switch to Benfica, the 24-year-old made 122 appearances for Arsenal over three years, scoring 17 goals.
"We have reached an agreement with Benfica for the transfer of Lisandro Lopez for 2013-14," a statement read on Getafe's official website.
