Jan 2 (Reuters) - Uruguay defender Mathias Suarez has joined Montpellier from Defensor Sporting, the Ligue 1 side said on Wednesday.
The 22-year old most often plays right back but can be used in other positions in both defence and midfield, the French club said in a statement.
He won his first full caps for the Uruguayan national side in November when he played against Brazil and France.
Montpellier are fourth in the Ligue 1 standings on 30 points from 17 games, two points off the Champions League places. (Reporting by Andrew Downie Editing by Christian Radnedge)
