Magpies lose out on Albin

The Magpies were keen on the Uruguayan, but he has now joined the
Barcelona club on a free transfer. Albin moves to Espnayol along
with fellow countryman Adrian Luna. The Under-21 midfielder arrives
from Defensor Sporting Club. Espanyol confirmed the arrival of the
Uruguayan duo, who both penned five-year deals. “The Uruguayans
Juan Albin and Adrian Luna have become Espanyol players for the
next five seasons after agreements were reached with Getafe and
Sporting Club respectively,” read a statement on the Espanyol
website.
