MADRID (Reuters) - Spain's Telefonica said on Monday it had closed a financing deal worth $743 million to acquire infrastructure from Nokia's Nokia Solutions and Networks.

The deal is the second of its kind after a similar deal in 2011, Telefonica said.

The telecommunications company signed the credit deal with BBVA, Santander and Barclays.
