Cypriot club AEL Limassol have taken Zezinho on loan for the rest of the season. The 21-year old midfielder spent last season on loan at Greek club Veria FC. Sporting have not including a clause for Limassol to buy the player after the loan.
O Jogo seem to think the protracted transfer for Egyptian centre-back Ramy Rabia may be finally near to an end. The 21-year old from Al-Ahly is set to sign a 5-year deal. No official word on the transfer just yet.
Rui Patrício, William Carvalho and Islam Slimani have all returned to training after their extended breaks following the World Cup. The trio will join up with Sporting’s training camp in the Netherlands.
Not everyone will be going to the camp; Vítor Silva, Salim Cissé, Mica Pinto and Rúben Semedo are all missing despite a few other youngsters joining up. Speculation will mount for the departure of Vítor Silva but the other 3 are likely to be loan moves if anything.
