Peru captain Nolberto Solano has agreed to join Universitario and will return to play in club football in his homeland for the first time in 12 years, coach Juan Reynoso said.
"I have Nol's word and that is worth more than any signed document," Reynoso told reporters as he was officially presented as the club's new coach.
Solano, 34, has spent most of his career in the English Premier League, where he had two stints with Newcastle United and also played for Aston Villa and West Ham United.
