Rosario Central sign Colombian defender Oscar Cabezas from Patriotas
This Monday, Rosario Central announced the signing of 21-year-old Colombian centre-back Oscar Cabezas. The youngster’s professional career began just last year with Patriotas de Boyaca but he was a consistent starter with the Colombian team that looks to be very promising.
The Tumaco, Colombia native started 43 games for Patriotas in 2017 between the domestic league and cup and the Copa Sudamericana. Rosario Central will play in the Copa Sudamericana this year and it will be beneficial to have players like Cabezas that have already played in the competition.

The 21-year-old will be Los Guerreros second signing in this transfer window, the other being Paraguayan midfielder Nestor Ortigoza. Central is currently 21st in the Superliga Argentina and will look to start to turn things around tonight as the league resumes play.
El Canalla will play Independiente away from home this Wednesday then will play Gimnasia in La Plata next Monday to start off 2018. Cabezas is unlikely to play against Independiente but could feature against Gimnasia next week.
