Ortega agrees deal with All Boys
River Plate legend Ariel Ortega will leave the club - after being told he is not part of their future plans - to join All Boys after agreeing a deal.
Ortega, who has been with the side since 2006, confirmed on Tuesday that he has held talks with club president Daniel Passarella and will be moving on to pastures new.
"There are details to fix but the overall picture is that I will go to another club because I am not part of River's plans and I feel I can play football still," he said. "River have given me the freedom to negotiate with who I want and I will sit down and talk to everyone. My only limit is Boca Juniors, I would never go there."
All Boys admitted they were keen on securing his signature and club president Roberto Bugarin claimed that a deal had already been agreed.
"I'm happy. Today we close everything and hopefully tomorrow [Wednesday] we will sign the contract, which may be of six months or a year. That will depend on Ortega" he said.
