Racing Santander deal for Coltorti stalls

Racing Santander's deal for Grasshoppers Zurich goalkeeper Fabio Coltorti has stalled.

Racing had agreed a £700,000 fee with Grasshoppers for the Switzerland No1, who already has settled on a four-year contract.

But Coltorti was back in Zurich last night without undergoing a medical in Santander. Racing officials are confident the deal will go through, but with just three days left of the summer market they know they are taking a big gamble.
