Barca’s Douglas set for Sivasspor

Out-of-favour Barcelona defender Douglas Pereira dos Santos is set to join Turkish club Sivasspor on a season-long loan, say reports.

Diario Sport report the Brazilian is set to agree a move for next season before his contract at the Camp Nou expires next summer.

Douglas spent last season on loan at Benfica but made only seven appearances for the Lisbon-based club, of which five came in domestic cup competitions.

The 27-year-old joined Barca from Sao Paulo in a €1.5m deal in 2014 but started only one La Liga match, and he spent the 2016/17 season on loan at Sporting Gijon.

Former Real Madrid star Robinho is at the Turkish club and the report states almost all of his wages will be covered by Sivasspor.
