Blackburn Rovers should complete the loan signing of Carlos Villanueva anytime now, maybe even sometime on Friday.
Terms have been agreed with the 22-year-old and an agreement struck with his club Audax Italiano to see him join Rovers on a season-long loan deal (with the view to a permanent signing if he is successful), which will be completed as soon as a work permit is obtained. Villanueva can't wait to join Rovers and is eager to get his Ewood Park career underway.
Villanueva told the Lancashire Telegraph: "I am very happy because I am going to be playing competitive football.
"I'm very keen to get things right and I hope to play as much as possible, as I intend on staying in England for a long time.
"I know that I will have to work hard, and I am not travelling thinking that I will immediately hold a position, but I hope I can win a place."
The Chilean International's agent, Cristian Ogalde is confident that Villanueva (a massive hit on YouTube!!!) can make an impression on the Premier League.
Ogalde told La Tercera: "Carlos is happy and calm, he is just anxious to start working with his new team-mates.
"We have presented all the documents that they need by English law and in a few days he will have the permission to play in the Premier League."
