Official: Hercules Complete Loan Capture Of Real Madrid's Royston Drenthe

Real Madrid's Royston Drenthe will join Hercules on loan this season...
Newly promoted Spanish Primera Division club Hercules have signed Royston Drenthe from Real Madrid on a season-long loan deal.

Drenthe joined Real Madrid in 2007 and although he has proved himself to be a good utility player on the left hand side, he has yet to earn a concrete place in the starting line-up.

The 23-year-old has now been shipped off to Hercules for the 2010-11 campaign, the Blancos have confirmed via their official website. Madrid have been looking to offload a player before the close of the summer transfer window and now they have the stipulated 25 players in their squad.
