Gala loan move for Reds’ Insua

The 21-year-old full-back has been at Liverpool for the past four

years, having joined as a youngster from Boca Juniors. However, he

struggled to break into the side and Tuesday’s signing of Paul

Konchesky by the Anfield club put another hurdle in his path.

“Galatasaray announce that Argentinian Emiliano Insua has joined

from Premier League club Liverpool on a one-year loan with a

purchase option agreement,” Gala said on their website. Insua made

44 appearances for Liverpool in total, the bulk of them coming last

season. He scored his only goal for Liverpool in the League Cup

against Arsenal last year. Having been a regular at youth levels,

Insua has two senior Argentina caps, both coming in World Cup

qualifiers last summer. He was strongly linked with Fiorentina

earlier this summer.
