Official: João Pereira Moves to Valencia

Today the transfer of João Pereira to Valencia was officially announced. Sporting receive a fee of €3,600,000 for the right-back’s service.

Since his arrival from Braga back in the January transfer window of 2010, João Pereira has been a main part of the Sporting squad becoming one of the team’s most senior players and has captained the team several times.

In his season and a half season at Sporting he made in total 101 appearances and scored 5 goals in all competitions.

João Pereira’s departure leaves a void in the right-back position with Santiago Arias, Bruno Pereirinha or perhaps the returning Cédric Soares from loan may be required to fill his boots.

We wish João Pereira the best of luck at Valencia.
