Bayern Munich midfielder Jose Ernesto Sosa has been loaned to Argentinian side Estudiantes de la Plata until the end of the season.

The 24-year-old Argentina international was signed for 10 million euros in the summer of 2007, but has had few chances to play under Bayern coach Louis van Gaal this season. His contract is set to run until 30 June 2011.

"I am realistic about the situation, I didn't take my chances," said Sosa, before flying back to Argentina with Estudiantes top of the league.
