Sporting Lisbon have announced the loan signing of Roma forward Seydou Doumbia.
The Portuguese club also have the option to make the transfer permanent at the end of Doumbia’s season-long stay at the club.
Ivory Coast international Doumbia, who spent last term at Basle, told the club’s official website: “It is a great pleasure to have arrived at this great club.
“I am very happy because I arrived a few days ago and was very welcomed by everyone.
“I do not want to create false expectations but I have not come to spend holidays and I will prepare myself in the best way, in this pre-season, and after that it will soon be seen.”
