July 1, 2009

Chile striker Fabian Orellana has been transferred to Italian club Udinese from Audax Italiano on a five-year contract, the Chilean club said on Tuesday.

Media reports put the transfer fee at around £2.13m.

Orellana, who will join compatriots Mauricio Isla and Alexis Sanchez at Udinese, scored the goal that gave Chile their first victory over Argentina in a World Cup qualifier last October.
