Carlos Peña has become a new player of Polish side GKS Tychy.
The Mexican midfielder, 28, has been linked with the potential move to Poland for some time now, including possible transfer to Wisła Cracow. Nonetheless, after undergoing mandatory medical tests, he signed a deal with GKS. His deal will be valid until June 30, 2020. The Tychy-based club secured the option of extending the contract for another 12 months.
Peña has played in 19 games for Mexican national team. In 2014 he went with them to compete in World Cup in Brazil. As for the club career, he used to play for Pachuca, Club León, Chivas de Guadalajara, Rangers FC, Cruz Azul, and Necaxa. He won the Mexican league title twice.
The midfielder said goodbye to Rangers a few weeks ago and he joins the new side on a free transfer basis. It is worth noting that he underwent some issues concerned with alcohol, as he admitted it himself.
GKS are currently 10th in the table of Polish First League (the second domestic division).
