Borussia Monchengladbach have taken defender Ruben Rocha Gonzalez on loan from Real Madrid.

The 22-year-old joins Gladbach until the end of the season.

“He is big, quick and good on the ball,” Borussia sporting director Christian Hochstatter said.

“We saw him by accident in a Madrid cup game and moved for him because our defence is not that big.”

Gonzalez, who has made two outings for the Spanish champions could make his debut this weekend against Cologne.
