Southampton Sign Starlet From Portugal On Loan
Thursday, 1st Feb 2024 18:53

Saints have taken 19 year old Ussumane Djaló on loan from Portuguese side FC Porto to play in the Academy side subject to a work permit.

Djaló started his career with Benfica before joining Porto and playing for their B Team in Portugal's second division and the UEFA Youth League.

Now he arrives at Southampton who will take a look at the player in the next few months, before deciding whether to take matters further and speak about doing a permanent deal in the summer.

Academy Director, Andy Goldie, said:

"We look forward to supporting Ussumane's development within the Under-21s programme over the remainder of the season, having been impressed with his progress at club and international level.

"He's an interesting prospect who strengthens our pathway in midfield and provides much-needed competition in our Under-21s group."

.with Alvarez on loan to Juventus , we need a new face to make up the numbers.
Not sure how often he might get om the bench, but if he shows up well in the U21's we might see him as a replacement for Charley - IF he ends up staying at Juventus.
