Beira-Mar have snapped up three promising players from the Liga Orangina today, as was announced in the Portuguese media. Abel Camara completed his move from Belenenses, Nuno Lopes joined from Oliveirense, and Tiago Cintra arrives from Leixoes. All three have showcased their talents in the Liga Orangina, and are now eager to do the same in the Portuguese topflight.
Belenenses to Beira-Mar
Yesterday’s rumor has predictably turned into today’s reality. Abel Camara has joined the club from Belenenses, where he had previously spent the entirety of his senior career. Currently a regular for the Portuguese Under-21 team, Abel is due to join training at Beira-Mar as soon as Tuesday. The striker reportedly signed a four-and-a-half year deal, which will tie him to the club until 2016.
Oliveirense to Beira-Mar
Nuno Lopes, who is Miguel Lopes’s twin brother, has joined Beira-Mar from Oliveirense. The right-defender had only been at the Liga Orangina club for a mere season and a half, but his performances have merited a move to the Liga Zon Sagres.
Leixoes to Beira-Mar
Tiago Cintra looked like a star for the future when he broke into Leixoes’s first-team two seasons ago. That promise has diminished, but many would argue that some portion of it is still there. Cintra played for Leixoes for two and a half seasons, before Beira-Mar snatched him up today.
