Columbus, OH (Sports Network) - The Columbus Crew are in the process of signing Argentine left back Gino Padula, according to head coach Sigi Schmid.
"We are bringing in a guy named Gino Pedula, we are trying to get that transfer done," he told sportsnetwork.com.
Padula is a 31-year-old defender who most recently played for Montpellier of the French Second Division. Pedula has played domestically in Argentina for River Plate as well as stints with Wigan, Queens Park Rangers and Nottingham Forest in England during his career.
"I was trying to find a left back, we feel that plugs a hole that we had a little bit back there," Schmid said. Sports Network

Daily Record - Skipper Set For Way Out
GRETNA captain Paul Murray could be offered an escape route by Oldham.

The midfielder, left, is wanted by the English League One promotion play-off hopefuls.
Murray, 31, will be available for free if Gretna fail to pay off their debts. The entire first-team squad have been told their contracts will be ripped up if the Raydale Park outfit close.
And Murray could be one of the first to find a new club.
Boundary Park manager John Sheridan could use the unexpected availability of the former England B international to bolster his squad ahead of the run-in.
Murray signed a one-year deal with Gretna last June and has made 23 appearances for the club and scored once.
He has previously played for Southampton, had two spells at Carlisle and once landed a £300,000 move to QPR. Daily Record
