Sporting snare Liedson

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

Sporting Clube de Portugal have increased their forward options by signing Brazilian Under-23 international 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.
