Edmilson joins Zaragoza


Two former Barça players made last minute moves in the winter transfer window with José Edmilson returning to the Spanish league with Zaragoza while Eidur Gudjohnsen moved from Monaco to Tottenham.

The winter transfer window slammed shut at midnight on Sunday but not before Palmeiras and Zaragoza reached an agreement for José Edmilson to join the Spanish club on loan until the end of the season. Meanwhile, Eidur Gudjohnsen has gone to Tottenham from Monaco – also on loan - until 30th June.
