Barça B - Official: Edu Oriol (Sant Andreu)

Barcelona has today officially announced the transfer of Sant Andreu attacker Edu Oriol (22), who will play with Barcelona Atlètic in the third division next season.

I know him well (since he was a kid). Great player who scored against Barcelona in Catalonia Cup. I know that last year he was near to sign but finally he went to St. Andreu. His twin (Joan) plays as a defender in Vilarreal B and he's reached Second Division this year.
