Jozy Loaned To Xerez

After much speculation and a couple of false starts, Jozy Altidore's loan deal from Villarreal to Xerez is now complete. The 19-year old American will join the Spanish second division side the rest of the year after scoring once in six appearances for the Yellow Submarine. His new team is currently first in Spain's second division standings and looking for Altidore to add the spark they need to stay on track for promotion to the Primera.

"This is a good opportunity for me because I will be able to get more playing time which will help me adapt to this country and continue to develop my career," said Altidore according to the club's web site.

it is a great opportunity for Jozy, cause he will have minutes to play in a hard competition-there are good team in the spanish second division and players like Abreu, Farinos, Pavon, Ponzio, Arizmendi, Maris Verpakovskis,Fabian Carini or Jose Mari.
