Galatasaray confirm Ontivero loan [divider]
Galatasaray have released a statement confirming the loan transfer of Lucas Ontivero to Hungarian side Honved.
The statement read: “Lucas Ontivero has joined Hungarian 1. Lig side Honved FC on loan until the end of the season.”
The transfer window in Turkey has ended however, in Hungary it runs until February 13 2015.
Ontivero spent the season out on loan at Gaziantepspor but failed to settle in and was rarely given a chance by manager Okan Buruk.
Ontivero only played a total of 299 minutes in all competitions for the Falcons over the course of the first half of the season.
The 20-year-old had his Gaziantepspor contract terminated by mutual consent this January.
Ontivero returned to his parent club Galatasaray following the decision but struggled to find a place in the senior team due to the foreign player regulations.
The Turkish Football Federation only permits five foreign players to play at any one time.
The Argentinian forward joined Galatasaray from Uruguayan side CA Finix last season.
