Celta Vigo have completed the loan signing of Real Madrid's Uruguay international midfielder Pablo Garcia.

Garcia, who joined Real from Osasuna in July 2005, played 22 times last season but has been deemed surplus to requirements by new boss Fabio Capello.

Garcia follows his countryman Carlos Diogo in exiting El Bernabeu, with the former River Plate star joining Real Zaragoza on loan last week.

Capello is bidding to release a number of his side's fringe players before Thursday's transfer deadline as he attempts to restructure the squad ahead of a renewed tilt at La Liga.

Denmark international Thomas Gravesen is expected to join Celtic, while Jonathan Woodgate is poised to return to The Premiership.
