Betis defender Tosca joining PAOK

Real Betis defender Alin Tosca could be set to join Greek club PAOK of Thessaloniki this summer, according to reports.

El Mundo Deportivo point to PAOK’s Romanian Coach Razvan Lucescu as being the driving force behind the potential deal for the out-of-favour defender.

A report in ABC de Sevilla claims the deal will be an initial loan deal with an option to buy at the end of the campaign.

The Romanian only joined the Seville-based club in January 2017 but has found game-time limited under Coach Quique Setien last campaign.

Tosca played 17 matches in the second half of his first season at Los Verdiblancos but only featured in six league games last campaign, before being loaned out to Italian club Benevento.

A potential permanent transfer is said to be in the region of €500k.

Betis are also seeking exits for Alex Alegria and Juanjo Narvaez in the remaining week of the transfer window.
