World Football - Napoli loan Vargas to Gremio

Napoli have allowed Chilean forward Eduardo Vargas a return to South America, where he has joined Gremio on a year-long loan.


The 23-year-old joined Napoli in the January transfer window in 2012 in part of an £11.5m deal, but has struggled to make an impression at the club.

Germio confirmed the deal, with the club adding in a statement: "It was a long negotiation, exhausting, but worth it for the quality that Vargas can add to our group."

Vargas will arrive in Brazil on Saturday, and be unveiled to fans at their home ground in Porto Alegre.
