Levante loan Montero from Villarreal

MADRID, Jan 31 (Reuters) - Promoted Levante have taken Ecuador midfielder Jefferson Montero on loan from Villarreal until the end of the season, the two clubs said on Monday.

The 21-year-old, who has 13 international caps, has had limited first-team opportunities with third-placed Villarreal this season.

Levante are 18th in La Liga with 18 points from 21 games after a 2-0 home win over Getafe on Saturday.
