Argentinian defender Santiago Juan Gentiletti has signed for Brest from Argentinos Juniors, the French club confirmed today.

The 26-year-old agreed a one-year deal with an option for an additional season should the Brittany club remain in the top flight. Brest narrowly avoided the drop last season, finishing just two points above the relegation zone.

After the signing of Jonathan Zebina, Brest's defensive line-up is complete for the new season, awaiting the return of injury-hit Brahim Ferradj and Moise Brou Apanga.
