Sporting snare Liedson

Sporting Clube de Portugal coach Fernando Santos has increased his forward options by signing Liedson.

Options limited
The arrival of the 25-year-old striker will help compensate for injuries to Marius Niculae and Elpidio Silva, which had left Sporting coach Fernando Santos with just one fit striker in 20-year-old Lourenço following the summer sales of Cristiano Ronaldo and Ricardo Quaresma.

Three-year contract
Sporting spent €2m for the player, who arrives on a three-year contract with the option of a further 12 months. He had been on loan at the Sao Paulo club SC Corinthians Paulista, although his contract was split between Prudentópolis and Coritiba FC.
