Another former Sporting Lisbon youth player could be on his way to the Estádio da Luz. A Bola is reporting on their website that Portugal U21 midfielder Diogo Rosado could sign with Os Encarnados by the end of the transfer window on Thursday.

Benfica has already reportedly signed Rui Fonte from Espanyol on Monday and could bolster their squad with the addition of Rosado. The 22-year-old Rosado impressed on loan with the now relegated Feirense during the 2011-12 season.

After seeing his opportunities limited at the senior squad, Rosado signed with the English club Blackburn Rovers who were relegated to the second division Championship just this season.

But Rosado has seen his playing time reduced this season, having played only two games. Like Rui Fonte, Rosado is seen as a very attractive prospect. Both players would likely be deployed to Benfica’s B squad in the Liga de Honra to receive more playing time.
