Owls linked with Portuguese midfielder

Wednesday have been linked with a move for Portuguese midfielder Diogo Amado, according to reports from Portugal.

The 22-year-old came through the youth ranks at Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon and has represented his country from U16 to U21 level.

And he looks set for a move to Hillsborough, with press reports in his homeland saying the Owls have secured a deal for his services.

He's on the books of Uniao Leiria but spent last season on-loan with Estoril.

Amado plays in midfield, primarily in a defensive role.

Wednesday could announce his signature before the end of the week.

I read somewhere that he was dubbed the new Moutinho, while at Sporting Lisbon. Sounds good!

I think he Wiki page may have been done by someone clearly not in the know. They say he's a direct replacement for James O'Connor. If that's the case, he's not the flair player you speak of. He's certainly got a good barnet on him!

Rubio has a 30million euro release clause in his contract so doubt there's much in that, the aliens that oversee Wikipedia clearly rate the other lad though

People, are you out of your minds trusting wiki? I can go there right now and change this guy's page to state that he won the Nobel price in Medicine for finding the cure for AIDS. It's wiki, for Christ's sake.
