Benitez moves from Santos Laguna to Premier League
Ecuador international and now former Santos Laguna striker Christian Benitez is moving to Premier League new-boys Birmingham City.
Benitez was a key player for Santos Laguna in their Concacaf Champions League run, scoring against the Montreal Impact in the second leg in Torreon (and also missing a boatload of chances in the first leg in Montreal).
Birmingham broke a club record, paying Santos nearly £10 million.
