Betis confirm capture of Serbia international full-back Tosic

Real Betis have confirmed the signing of Serbian international defender Dusko Tosic.

Coach Pepe Mel announced his signature, as the club confirmed the left-back had passed a medical to complete a long-awaited deal, after receiving permission to leave Serbia’s training base for their Euro 2012 qualifying preparations.

The 26-year-old Tosic is a much-travelled defender, listing experience in Ligue 1, the Premier League, the Bundesliga and in his native country’s top League, where he joins the newly-promoted Betis from Red Star Belgrade.

Joining for a fee believed to be in the region of €1m, Tosic is the team’s ninth summer signing, and follows the equally high-profile arrivals of defender Ustaritz Aldekoaotalora from Athletic Bilbao and forward Roque Santa Cruz from Manchester City, who both signed this week on loan deals.
