Premier League: Martin Caceres joins Southampton

Southampton announced the signing of free agent Martin Caceres on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

Caceres is a 29 year-old Uruguay international defender who was a free agent after leaving Juventus in last June after the expiration of his contract. AC Milan thought to have offered a contract to him, but after rejecting it, he now completed his move to the Saints. Caceres is expected to catch up with his new team-mates for their training Camp in Spain.

The Ururugay international will provide much needed cover at the back, after vital defender Virgil van Dijk suffered a long-term injury during the Saints’ 3-0 victory over struggling Leicester City in January. The addition of Caceres is even more welcomed, after van Dijk’s partner and club captain Jose Fonte left the club for West Ham during the January transfer window.

The South-American player is ready to make his debut for the south coast club in the English League Cup Final match against Manchester United. Yet after failing to play any competitive games this season, a place in the starting line-up is highly unlikely.

Caceres told Southampton’s official website:
“I am very happy to have signed for what is an important club in English football. I am looking forward to getting started with my new team-mates.
“Of all of the options that I had, I think that the best option for me was to come to Southampton. I am extremely happy to have joined this club.”

Caceres, who was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, started his career back in Uruguay with Defensor Sporting, before signing for Spanish side Villareal in 2007. He didn’t register a single apperance for the Yellow Submarines, as he was loaned out for the season to fellow La Liga side, Recreativo Huelva.

In 2008, Barcelona signed him from Villareal, but had only a handful of opportunities behind Carles Puyol, Rafael Marquez and Gerard Piqué. He remained an FC Barcelona player until 2011, altough he was loaned out to Juventus and Sevilla during his stay with the Blaugrana. In the summer of 2011, Sevilla signed Caceres on a permanent transfer, but during the January transfer window in 2012, he was loaned out to Juventus once again. In June 2012, the Old Lady completed the permanent transfer from Sevilla, and remained with the Bianconeri till June 2016.

Caceres has 68 caps for the Uruguay natinal side, scoring 3 goals. He featured four times for the side which reached the last 16 at the 2014 World Cup in Brasil.

He won the treble with Barcelona in 2008, clinching the La Liga, Copa del Rey and Champions League titles. He is also a 5-time Serie A, 2-time Coppa Italia and 3-time Supercoppa Italiana winner with Juventus.

He was part of the Uruguay team, that clinched the 2011 Copa America title with a 3-0 victory over Paraguay in the final.
