Spanish side Villarreal have announced the signing of Portuguese centre-back Ruben Semedo from Sporting CP for a reported fee of €14million on a five-year deal.
The Portuguese club are said to have requested that a 20 percent sell-on clause is incorporated into the player’s contract.
“Villarreal have reached an agreement with Sporting for the transfer of defender Ruben Semedo, who will play for the club for the next five seasons (until 2022),” a Villarreal statement confirmed.
The 23-year-old had been intensely linked with Premier League sides Newcastle United and Southampton as of late. It was reported in England and in Portugal that The Magpies were firm top picks to sign the Portugal international but became baffled with his club requests demanding a sell-out clause.
