The 26-year-old, who will be unveiled by the Spanish Cup holders later on Thursday pending a successful medical, has spent the last four seasons with Porto although he was loaned to Vitória SC for part of 2004/05. He has scored nine goals in 41 Liga matches for the club and will hope to be involved when his new side take on FC Artmedia in the UEFA Cup first round, with the first leg in Slovakia on 14 September.
