Pumas sign four new players

After a terrible Apertura season, the Mexico City club is wasting no time revamping its attack.

Pumas are the first team to make a major move in the Liga MX transfer market ahead of the Clausura 2014, with sporting vice president Mario Trejo announcing four new signings after the club finished the Apertura regular season in last position.

The team’s attack – which managed a measly eight goals in 17 games – will have a new look, with Daniel Luduena brought in as the playmaker, Argentine striker Ismael Sosa arriving from Chile’s Universidad Catolica and Dante Lopez back at the club where he picked up the Clausura 2009 and Clausura 2011 championships.

In midfield, 36-year-old Leandro Augusto returns to Pumas on a six-month loan.

Winger Candido Ramirez has already left the club to join Monterrey, while striker Ariel Nahuelpan is headed to Pachuca in exchange for Luduena, and Robin Ramirez will be leaving and has two offers from Colombia.

Spaniard Luis Garcia – who played for Atletico Madrid and Liverpool – is also on the move and is looking for a new club, possibly back in Spain, added Trejo.

The spending may not be over for the Mexico City club either, with Trejo stating Pumas are also on the look out for a left winger.
