Paulo Ribeiro bound for Porto

FC Porto have signed Portuguese Under-21 international Paulo Ribeiro from Vitória FC on a three-year contract.
FC Porto have signed Portugal Under-21 goalkeeper Paulo Ribeiro on a three-year contract from Vitória FC.

International reputation
The 21-year-old becomes the second player to leave the Setúbal club for the SuperLiga runners-up after the acquisition of midfielder Sandro, 28, earlier this month. Paulo Ribeiro will provide competition for Vítor Baía, having been part of the Portuguese team that reached the final of the 2003 UEFA European Under-19 Championship, saving two penalties in the last-four victory against Austria.

More signings?
Another Vitória player, Brazilian playmaker Jorginho, could also be on his way to the 2003/04 UEFA Champions League winners, as could his compatriot, UD Leiria goalkeeper Hélton. Porto will start the 2005/06 Champions League in the group stage. Vitória, meanwhile, will play in the UEFA Cup after winning the Portuguese Cup.
