Caceres Set For Southampton
Martin Caceres is reportedly closing in on a deal to join Southampton after the former Barcelona defender rejected the chance to stay in Serie A when turning down AC Milan at the weekend.
Juventus released the Uruguay international in the summer but as yet the 29 year old hasn't managed to find himself a new club.
Despite passing a medical with AC Milan he couldn't agree personal terms on a deal to take him to the San Siro but will complete a move to Southampton according to the BBC.
In order for this Caceres needs to be granted a work permit with 'other formalities' also needing to be completed on a deal that would see him pen a deal at St Mary's.
With Caceres a free agent the defender will be able to join the Premier League side outside of the transfer window. He's not managed a first team appearance in almost a year due to a ruptured Achilles tendon last February.
