Uruguayan midfielder Gonzalo Garcia has gone off on a season-long loan to Cypriot outfit Anorthosis Famagusta FC. He began his career in the youth ranks of Real Madrid and rose up as far as the reserve team. After encountering difficulties finding a home at several Spanish clubs, he made a move to Holland and in his first season at second tier AGOVV Apeldoorn scored 16 goals in 35 appearances. His success attracted the attention of first division side SC Heerenveen but in his first season there he scored just one goal in 14 appearances. His next stop in Holland was to fellow first division side FC Groningen, where starting in the 2008 season Garcia made 49 appearances and scored 7 goals. The last of his three years at the club was spent on loan at then first division club VVV-Venlo, where he made 14 appearances and scored three goals.
