Marcos Rojo has ended his five-and-a-half-year affiliation with United after Primera Division side Estudiantes confirmed his arrival via their official Twitter account on Thursday. 

The 29-year-old, who made his professional debut with the Argentine outfit back in 2009, returns to his homeland after making 122 appearances during his time at Old Trafford. 

At this stage, neither club has revealed further details about the deal, but LaRadioRedonda journalist Maria Gabriela has reported that the Argentina international has joined on a year-long loan deal, with a cancellation clause after six months included.
