Norwich City striker Sebastian Soto is on his way to Portugal, according to reports.
Website Mais Futebol write that the 20-year-old will be joining Porto on a one-year loan spell, with the Dragons having an option to buy.
Soto is set to arrive at his new club today, and after having his medical and sorting the final bureaucratic details, he’s signing a contract for a season.
Mais Futebol say the player will mostly feature for the Porto’s B squad, but will ‘regularly work’ with the first team and hopes to have opportunities to play under Sérgio Conceição.
Norwich City signed Soto on a free move from Hannover 96 last summer. They immediately sent him to the Netherlands, where he spent six months on a loan at Telstar.
The striker had seven goals in 12 games for the Dutch side and then returned to the Canaries in January. However, he couldn’t find a place in the English side, and is now once again moving somewhere else to get some playing time.
Mais Futebol says Soto is evaluated at €1m, but doesn’t make it clear if that’s the price Porto would need to pay to make the move permanent.
