A Bola is today reporting that Algarve club Olhanense is interested in loaning Ricardo Esgaio and João Mário.
The paper says Olhanense manager Paulo Alves has identified the two as fitting into his system and the club will try and secure loans for the two players when the transfer window reopens in January.
Ricardo Esgaio has been in excellent form for the B team again this season but has not yet had a look in for Leonardo Jardim in the first team. Some regular first team Primeira Liga action could well be a positive mood for the versatile player.
João Mário seems to have fallen down the pecking order under Abel Ferreira with rumours that the two do not see eye to eye. A loan move for him would be best for everyone and Cercle Brugge have previously been mentioned as possibility.
