Sporting have announced the signing of the Spain U-21 international Jeffren from FC Barcelona. The transfer sum is believed to be around €3.5 millions.
Jeffren Suarez has signed a five years contract with a €30 millions release clause inserted into the deal.
Jeffren declared that he is more than happy with the transfer as he is hoping for more playing time. The 23 years old winger played only 23 games since he was promoted to Barcelona first team.
There are reports from Spain that Barcelona have put a buy back price on the talented midfielder which will be available for the next two years.
The Spanish midfielder was initially included in the deal that brought Alexis Sanchez to Camp Nou but the player was not interested in a move to Serie A.
Sevilla, Valencia and Atletico Madrid were also interested in signing Jeffren but Sporting have won the race.
