According to O Jogo full-back Welder could well be heading from an early exit out of the club.
O Jogo reports that the club thus far has been underwhelmed with Welder since he joined the club on loan from Palmeiras last summer. Welder has yet to feature for the first team and has not excelled at B-team level so it seems he may be returning to his parent club quicker than expected.
Welder can play left and right back but with the Cédric Soares and Jefferson in fine form he has yet to get close to the first team. Indeed, according to O Jogo his poor showings are what prompted Sporting to also grab Iván Piris on the last day of the transfer market.
