Sporting get more of Moutinho

Talented teenager João Moutinho has signed a one-year extension to his contract at Sporting Clube de Portugal.
Attacking midfield player João Moutinho has signed a one-year extension to his contract at Sporting Clube de Portugal.

Extended agreement
The 18-year-old has extended his deal until the summer of 2009 with the club inserting a €20m buy-out clause into his contract. "I'm very happy with this new deal," said the Portuguese Under-21 international. "To be able to play for Sporting is a dream come true. I'm here to help the club in every way I can."

Excellent start
Moutinho has shown immense promise since stepping up from the youth team into the first XI at Sporting in January, making an important contribution to the club's run to the UEFA Cup final. Sporting agreed an extended deal with his team-mate Sá Pinto yesterday.
