FC Twente boss Gonzalo García has spoken of his suprise at being able to land Barcelona B midfielder Oriol Busquets on loan.

The 20-year-old is expected to complete a temporary move to the Eredivisie early next week, and Garcia said he expects the youngster to fit in well.

“Of all the interested clubs, we had the least money to spend, so I am surprised by his arrival,” he said.

“Maybe it helps that I am a Spanish trainer and that we already have four Spanish players with Aitor, Espinoza, Matos, Pleguezuelo. Busquets initially comes to FC Twente to further develop.

“He will have few adjustment problems in terms of language and composition of the dressing room.”

Busquets’ move to Twente will be the next step in his development, and he will be hoping he can enjoy some regular game time at the Dutch side during his season at the club.
