Sporting Lisbon have signed Gambian-born, Danish defender Seejou King on loan for the rest of the season. King’s rights are owned by Danish champions F.C. Nordsjælland. The deal includes an option to sign the player to a permanent deal.

It is believed that King will act as a possible long-term replacement for Emiliano Insúa, who has been linked with Brazilian club Grémio. King is expected to remain with Sporting B Squad in the Liga de Honra.

“I am very happy to have this opportunity with Sporting, they are one of the big clubs of Europe. I want to help the club win and also show what I could do,” King told Danish media.
