Arnold Fabian Peralta Sosa (born 29 March 1989) is a footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder for Olimpia and the Honduras national football team.

Club career[edit]


In 2008 he signed for LINA club Vida.[1]


On 3 June 2013, it was announced that Peralta had agreed to join Scottish club Rangers on a four–year deal, subject to receiving a work permit. He will be eligible to play once Rangers' player registration embargo is lifted on 1 September 2013.[2] Peralta scored his first goal for Rangers in a friendly against Dundee.[3]

On 21 January 2015, Rangers announced that Peralta's contract had been terminated by mutual consent.[4]

Following Peralta's release from Rangers, he went on trial with FC Shakhter Karagandy,[5] but did not earn a contract.[6] He later returned to his home country after signing for Olimpia.[7][8]

International career[edit]

Peralta was the Honduran Under-20 captain, helping his country qualify to the 2009 FIFA World Youth Championship, in Egypt, in which he played three games scoring against eventual third place Hungary. He also participated in the 2012 Summer Olympics, making his debut on 26 July in a 2–2 draw against Morocco at Hampden Park, Glasgow.

He made his senior debut for Honduras in a September 2011 friendly match against Paraguay and has, as of April 2013, earned a total of 13 caps, scoring no goals. He has represented his country in seven FIFA World Cup qualification matches.[9] and played at the 2013 Copa Centroamericana.[10]
