Vasco da Gama loan Peru international Yoshimar Yotún
Peruvian club Sporting Cristal have confirmed that left wing-back Yoshimar Yotún (pictured, right) will join Vasco da Gama on a one-year loan contract, with an option to buy.
A statement released by the club read: “Sporting Cristal have ceded Yoshimar Yotún on loan to Vasco da Gama of Brazil. The agreement is for one year.
The exact details regarding the option to buy agreement were not released. However, it was confirmed that the fee would be a new club record, outstripping past receipts for the likes of Jefferson Farfan (pictured, left) and Claudio Pizarro.
Regarding the impending move, Yotún spoke of his delight at moving to “the best league in South America”.
“I will try to adapt as quickly as possible,” he added. “It will be difficult, but I have the ability to do so. I hope that everything turns out well and they allow me to stay much longer in Brazil. After that, why not make a move to Europe.”
Yotún, 22, is regarded as one of the best young talents in Peru and has the ability to play anywhere on the left-flank, but is likely to play as a wing-back in Brazil.
