Villanueva Eager To Get His Rovers Career Going
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."
