The Argentina international has joined us on a four-year contract.

The central defender, who was part of the Argentina sides that won the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in 2007 and Olympic gold in Beijing in 2008, began his career in his homeland with Ferro Carril Oeste before joining Sevilla in 2007.

Capped twice at full international level, Fazio went on to make 194 appearances for the La Liga side and was also a key member of their Europa League winning team last season, beating Benfica on penalties in the final in Turin.
