After signing full-back Marcos Alonso from Fiorentina on the same terms earlier this month, Poyet has added centre-back Vergini from Uruguayan side Atletico Fenix.

The 25-year old has previously played with Olimpia in Paraguay and Verona in Italy, while most recently he was on loan with Argentine side Estudiantes after a spell with Newell's Old Boys.

Vergini's one and only cap for his country came in 2012.
