Layun to join Real Betis

FC Porto defender Miguel Layun will join Real Betis this week and will fly into Seville on Monday to complete a move, say reports in Spain.

The Mexican international has fallen out of favour at FC Porto, making only two starts for the Portuguese league leaders this season.

The 29-year-old had also been linked with a move to Alaves, while Celta Vigo and Deportivo La Coruna had reportedly previously held an interest.

Cadena Ser now state the right-back will fly into the Andalucian capital on Monday to complete his move with reports indicating this will be an initial loan deal with an option to buy.

Layun spent twelve months in England with Watford before moving to Porto in 2016 and is said to be available on an affordable permanent transfer or as a loan deal.

Rafael Navarro and Alin Tosca look set to depart Los Verdiblancos this month as the squad renovation continues to take shape.
