Trezeguet, 35, was not selected as part of River’s squad for the upcoming season, fuelling speculation over his departure.

The striker has opted for a short move to the Copa Libertadores semi-finalists, and explained he is delighted to have sorted out his future.

"It’s a very special day for me, this signing brings me great joy," he told reporters.

"I want to thank all the clubs in Primera B Nacional and B Metropolitana who were interested in me, but I decided on Newell's because it is a club that is doing well and is well respected in the world.

"I would like to leave something with the club and personally I would like to reach 300 goals in my career. Moreover, with Newell’s I will have the opportunity to play in the Copa Libertadores tournament.

"When River Plate decided I was not going to be part of their project it was a delicate moment of reflection and one difficult day for me."
