Latics Set To Sign Osasuna Striker Oriol Riera




Well at last we can safely break the story after it has been reported in the Spanish press that the Latics are to sign Osasuna striker Oriol Riera.

The 27 year old front man will cost a reported 2.5m with the La Liga club negotiating to receive the cash up front.

Riera came through the Barcelona academy though only featured for the C and B teams, he moved to Celta Vigo in 2010 before dropping down to the Segunda Division with Cordoba and then Alcoron, he impressed whilst at Alcoron and Osasuna splashed the cash last summer to take Riera to Pamplona.

A good campaign last with Osasuna saw Riera score 13 goals in 37 appearances, including 2 against Real and 1 goal against Atletico.

Waiting for official confirmation from the Latics, but this looks a nailed on deal.
