Flamengo’s vice-president Wallim Vasconcellos confirmed Friday that former Sporting Lisbon striker Liédson is close to a loan deal with Porto.

Vasconcellas told Antena 1 radio, “FC Porto is showing interest in Liedson. They want a loan deal and that is what we are discussing. Negotiations are on-going, nothing has been finalized, but I hope everything will be decided by the end of the week.”

In an interview with Portuguese radio station Renascença, Vasconcellas said that Liedson is reportedly happy about the possibility of returning to Portugal. The clubs are discussing who will pay his wages. Vasconcellas added that it would be a great deal for the three parties: Liedson, Flamengo and FC Porto.

Liedson played with Sporting Lisbon between 2003-2011 scoring 173 goals in 313 total games and becoming the club’s sixth highest scorer in its history.
