Bayern sends Sosa back to Argentina

Bayern Munich is sending Argentina midfielder Jose Ernesto Sosa back to Estudiantes on loan until the end of the season.

Sosa is in his third season at Bayern but has not been able to secure a place in the starting lineup. He has six appearances this season in three competitions under coach Louis van Gaal.

Bayern did not give the conditions of the deal announced Friday.

The 24-year-old Sosa says he will seek to come back to Bayern next season.
