Vilca joins Universitario de Deportes on loan
Peruvian midfielder Rodrigo Vilca has joined Universitario de Deportes in his native country on loan for the remainder of the year.
The 23-year-old, who joined the Magpies from Deportivo Municipal on a four-year deal in October 2020, spent the first-half of the 2021/22 campaign on loan at League One Doncaster Rovers.
The Lima-born playmaker - who celebrates his birthday on Saturday - made 13 competitive outings for Donny, scoring two goals and registering three assists, before returning to Tyneside in January.
He has returned to Peru for a loan spell until January 2023, linking up with the Liga 1 side, who finished third in the Peruvian top-flight last term.
