(Reuters) – Argentine winger Alejandro Dario Gomez has moved from Catania to Metalist, signing a four-year deal with the Ukrainian club.
The 25-year-old attacking midfielder said he preferred Metalist, the Ukraine league runners-up, to Italian International and Fiorentina and Spanish Atletico Madrid.
“Metalist was the most persistent club in the negotiations and that’s why I am here,” Gomez told the official Metalist website.
Having been a part of the Argentinean attacking force at Catania, Gomez perfectly fits into the Metalist playing schemes as six of his compatriots have already joined the Ukrainian club.
