Sporting Close to Signing Barcelona’s Jeffrén

It seems Sporting’s summer spending spree isn’t quite over just yet, according to various media sources (including Record and the Catalan-based El Mundo Deportivo), Sporting Clube de Portugal are currently in advanced negotiations with Barcelona for their player, Jeffrén with the deal not far from being complete.

Jeffrén personally wanted to stay, having previously refused moves to England but it seems that Sporting have done enough to convince the player and he could soon be signing a 5-year contract. Record speculates  the transfer could be just under €5,000,000.

With Diego Capel presumably starting on the left wing next season and Yannick Djaló starting on the right, Jeffrén would not be guaranteed a place in Sporting’s first team but will have much more playing time then he current has at Barcelona.
