Adan set for Sporting CP move

Real Betis goalkeeper Antonio Adan is set to join Portuguese giants Sporting CP in a €3m deal, according to reports in Spain.

The 31-year-old has been the first-choice at the Seville-based club since joining from Cagliari in 2014 but Estadio Deportivo now reports a deal is close to being complete.

The Seville-based outlet follows up on a report in Portuguese sports paper Record now stating the goalkeeper is in ‘advanced talks’ with Sporting with Los Verdiblancos keen to cash-in.

Betis are said to have agreed a deal for out-of-contract Espanyol goalkeeper Pau Lopez, who would become first-choice with Quique Setien’s side, who will compete in the Europa League next season while West Ham's Adrian has also been linked.

Long-serving Sporting goalkeeper and Portugal international Rui Patricio looks set to leave the club this summer and is said to be actively trying to terminate his contract, with Napoli and Wolves both linked.
