Mexico: Chivas Set To Loan Nery Castillo

Chivas Guadalajara are set to sign Shakhtar Donetsk forward Nery Castillo to a short-term loan contract as cover for the remainder of their Mexican Apertura and Copa Sudamericana campaigns.

Castillo, 24, has been using Chivas' training facilities in an attempt to regain fitness ahead of Mexico's vital World Cup Qualifier against Honduras next Wednesday after being frozen out at Manchester City, with whom he is on currently on loan from Shaktar.

Chivas' vice president Nestor de la Torre confirmed that they had reached an agreement to sign Castillo until the end of the year, and that he would take to the field as soon as the necessary paperwork is completed.

Castillo will not be eligible for the first leg of Chivas' Copa Sudamericana semi-final against Internacional of Brazil on Wednesday, and will miss the second leg on international duty, but would be available for the two-legged final should Chivas progress.
