Young Argentine midfielder Santiago Caseres has been signed as the replacement for Rodri at Villarreal.

Villarreal have secured the signing of highly rated Argentine midfielder Santiago Cáseres from Vélez Sarsfield on a five-year deal. The Yellow Submarine have been on the hunt for a defensive midfielder following the departure of Rodri to Atlético de Madrid and Cáseres, 21, is the man selected to fill the void.

Key man for Vélez

Cáseres remains inexperienced after only breaking into Vélez's first team in 2017, but in that time he has reportedly drawn admiring glances from numerous European clubs, with Atlético said to have been one of them. This season he has become a crucial part of Gabriel Heinze's side and is said to have brought Vélez somewhere in the region of €10million with his transfer fee.
