Southampton's Osvaldo set for Boca Juniors move

Dani Osvaldo is on the verge of joining Boca Juniors on loan according to reports.

The 29-year old striker recently had his loan spell with Inter Milan terminated but will not return to parent club Southampton.

Osvaldo, who has had a trail of controversy follow him around over the past few years, revealed that he is set to join the club he supported as a child following a subpar 18-month spell with the Saints, Juventus and Inter.

"It's the biggest dream of my life," Osvaldo said upon arrival in Buenos Aires.

"I'm very happy, very nervous about all this... I haven't signed yet so I'm not saying anything for now.

"I know full well what it means to wear the Boca shirt. I have faith that everything will work out well."

The Argentine-born Italy international, who has previously played for such clubs as Lecce, Fiorentina, Bologna, Espanyol and AS Roma, will have a medical with Boca before signing a temporary deal with the famous La Bombonera outfit.
