Yerson Mosquera, a new arrival in defence

The Colombian defender will play on loan at Villarreal until the end of the season

Villarreal CF and Wolverhampton Wanderers have reached a loan agreement for Colombian defender Yerson Mosquera, who will play for the Submarine on loan until the end of the current season.

Mosquera, who will wear the No.2 shirt, has passed his medical and will train with his new team-mates for the first time tomorrow in the training session scheduled for 11:30am at the José Manuel Llaneza Training Ground. After that, he will be officially presented as a Villarreal player, alongside Gonçalo Guedes, at the press room in the training ground.

Power and strength for the yellow defence

Yerson Mosquera (Apartadó, Colombia, 2nd May 2001) is one of the most promising young players in Colombian football. In addition to his aggressiveness, his great presence and physical power are some of the characteristics that define the 1.88m centre-back, who has already been called up by the national senior team.

Mosquera began his professional career at Atlético Nacional in Colombia, where he impressed so much during the 2020/21 season that just one year later, he joined Wolverhampton Wanderers.

In England, after not playing much of a role during the 2021/22 season, he was loaned to MLS team FC Cincinnati, where he was one of the most important players in the squad that finished first in the MLS Eastern Conference, before losing in the semi-finals of the playoffs to eventual winners, Columbus Crew.

After the MLS season finished in December, Mosquera returned to Wolves before joining Villarreal, where he will stay on loan for the rest of the season.
