The 20-year-old Argentinian striker has signed for Blues on loan for the remainder of the season and is expected to make his debut in the reserves game against Arsenal tonight.

"Blues have today completed the loan signing of Argentinian striker Mauro Zarate from Qatari side Al-Sadd," read a club statement.

"The Under-20 international joins the club until the end of the current season.

"Blues are hoping to be able to play Zarate in this evening's (Monday's) reserve game against Arsenal at St. Andrew's, but that is dependent on international clearance being received by 5pm."
