MONTEVIDEO, Jan. 12 (Xinhua) -- Ecuador international forward Fidel Martinez said Friday that he has agreed to join Penarol on loan as the reigning Uruguayan champions bolster their squad for the 2018 season.

Martinez will arrive in Montevideo on Monday after Mexico's Atlas ceded him until the end of June, the 27-year-old told Uruguayan radio station Sport890.

"I want to tell the fans that I'm going to play my heart out for the club," Martinez said. "[Penarol] are one of the biggest teams in the world and I'll have an immense responsibility which I'm taking very seriously."

Martinez is Penarol's fifth new signing since December, joining Agustin Canobbio, Giovanni Gonzalez, Rodrigo Pineiro and Luis Maldonado.

The Montevideo club secured their 49th division one title by winning the clausura tournament in December, finishing nine points ahead of second-placed Defensor Sporting. Enditem
