Bryan Montenegro has hit the jackpot with a whopping five-year contract from a Paraguayan club, it has been confirmed.
The Leeds flop has been tied down until 31st December, 2021 after agreeing a transfer to top-flight outfit Olimpia Asuncion.
Montenegro’s move from fellow Paraguayan club Nacional was announced at the end of last week.

The 23-year-old striker will reinforce the attack of his new club as he aims to demonstrate the goals potential that won him 10 caps at Paraguay Under-20 level.
Montenegro has not yet been able to replicate his form in youth-team football at senior level and is remembered in English football for disappointing loan spells at Leeds and West Ham.
The forward spent the 2014-15 campaign at Elland Road after being among the first batch of signings sanctioned by Massimo Cellino after he took charge of the club that year.
But Montenegro failed to earn the trust of his managers and made just one start among six appearances for Leeds, in which he failed to score or assist a goal.
The Paraguayan spent most of his year outside of the matchday squad and only got a few late run-outs as substitute in the final weeks of the campaign.
In other Leeds transfer news, the club came within a whisker of signing this forward on deadline day.
