Barcelona to loan Keirrison to Santos

MADRID (Reuters) -- Barcelona have agreed to loan Brazilian forward Keirrison to Santos for next season, the Spanish champions said on Monday.

The 21-year-old spent last season on loan with Benfica and then Fiorentina, but has been deemed surplus to requirements by coach Pep Guardiola again for the 2010-11 campaign.

Barca bought Keirrison from Palmeiras for 14 million euros a year ago.
