Flamengo to Porto (loan)
Sporting Lisbon legend has controversially made the jump over the Atlantic to return to Portugal. He is not returning to Sporting, however. He has joined Porto on loan until the end of the season, in order to add depth to a thin squad. This move has been rumored for some time, but many did not believe that it would actually happen. Liedson became a cult figure at Sporting during the years he played for the club. Many understood his decision to leave in 2011, when he joined Corinthians, in his native Brazil. He soon moved to Flamengo for the 2012 season, and will now be seen donning the Porto jersey until the end of the season.
