COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Columbus Crew have agreed to terms with 25-year-old Argentine midfielder Matias Sanchez, who played from 2008-12 with Estudiantes of his country's Primera Division.

The 25-year-old Sanchez joins the Crew after playing 94 matches in all competitions over the past five years. The central midfielder helped the La Plata side to the 2010 Argentine Apertura and 2009 Copa Libertadores crowns.

As a result, Sanchez and Estudiantes clinched a place in the 2009 FIFA Club World Cup in the United Arab Emirates, where they finished runner-up to FC Barcelona. Sanchez joined Estudiantes in 2008 after making 44 appearances from 2006-08 with Racing Club, where he spent his youth career.

Sanchez made 14 appearances for Argentina's U-20 National Team, helping the side win the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Canada.
