Transfer News – 6/8/10


Even though the World Cup is at our doorstep, the world of soccer is still buzzing with activity. Here’s the latest:

1. Sereno to Porto

The Portuguese defender moved from Vitoria Guimaraes to Valladolid in the Winter after it was widely speculated that he had transferred to Porto. Sereno did relatively well at the Spanish outfit but, just like fellow countryman Pele, relegation was inevitable. So, frightened at the prospect of playing in the Liga Adelante, or something like that, Porto have snatched up the defender on a free transfer with a buyout clause of 30 million.

2. Bruno Gama to EPL?

Highly rated Rio Ave winger Bruno Gama is evidently on two English Premiership teams’ radars. The two teams were not specified. Gama is a former captain of the Portugal U-21 side, and has recently impressed for Rio Ave.

3. Orlando Sa loaned to Nacional

Portuguese U-21 international Orlando Sa will join Helder Barbosa at Nacional next season as they aim to earn a European spot for the 2011-2012 season. Orlando Sa has had limited playing time since arriving from SC Braga last summer, so the loan to Nacional was obviously done to increase playing time. Helder Barbosa, who also recently joined Nacional from Porto may combine quite well with Sa, and fellow U-21 international Joao Aurelio. Expect to see goals.
