Ex-Bayern Munich midfielder Sosa close to Estudiantes return

Buenos Aires, April 25 (IANS) Former Argentina international midfielder Jose Sosa has said he is close to leaving Trabzonspor to join his original club Estudiantes de La Plata.

Sosa’s contract with the Turkish side expires at the end of the current European season, paving the way for his return to Argentina as a free agent in July, reports Xinhua news agency.

“My contract is coming to an end. I’ve been talking (with Estudiantes). I have to be careful about what I say because the club asked me not to comment. But if I go back to Argentina it will be to play with Estudiantes.

Sosa made his professional debut with Estudiantes in 2002 after being promoted from the club’s youth academy.

He has since had spells with Bayern Munich, Napoli, Atletico Madrid and Milan. The 34-year-old has been capped 19 times for Argentina from 2005 to 2013, scoring one goal.
