Tiago agrees to join Osasuna in loan deal

August 12, 2008

Osasuna have reached an agreement with Benfica to sign the Portuguese club's young left-back Tiago Gomes.

The 22-year-old Tiago, a Portugal Under-21 international, will initially join Osasuna on a one-year deal but with an option for three more if the move is a success, with Benfica receiving 30% of any future sale.

Tiago, who will not cost Osasuna a transfer fee, is the Pamplona-based club's seventh signing of the summer.
