Portuguese newspaper A Bola today features a story about Rúben Lameiras, who has just left Plymouth to join Famalicão.
They write that despite being born in Lisbon, the player left his country at the age of four, having moved to England, where he later started his career at Tottenham Hotspur.
Lameiras scored 12 goals for Plymouth last season, and although he couldn’t stop the club’s relegation to League 2, A Bola claims that scouts from Championship sides became interested in his performances.
However, Lameiras has chosen something he believes to be a ‘more ambitious’ project, and ended up signing a four-year deal for Famalicão.
“I think I’m going to adapt very well to the Portuguese league. And because I’m ambitious, it’s better coming to Famalicão, who are managed by ambitious people like me,” Lameiras told the club’s official website.
Lameiras started his career at Tottenham Hotspur’s academy, having been sent on loan to Swedish side Atvidaberg as well.
In 2015, he left Spurs to join Coventry City, where he stayed for two years, later signing for Plymouth in 2017.
He’s now left the League One side at the end of his contract, with 18 goals and 19 assists in 82 appearances for them.
