Yannick Signs for Benfica


Yannick Djalo

Unattached to Benfica

Former Sporting Lisbon winger Yannick Djalo has signed for Benfica, after having been without a club for half a season. There had been much speculation as to where Yannick would end up. After a move to Porto was deemed simply a rumor, there was talk that the player could actually join Nice, the club he was set to join originally. Last night, however, amid reports that Benfica were on the verge of signing him, Yannick stated that there were three clubs chasing him. Soon after, Benfica announced on their website that they had hired Yannick on a four year contract. Yannick trained with the club today, and will attempt to earn a spot this summer in the Portuguese squad at Euro 2012.
