Bento to join Sporting Lisbon
Sporting Lisbon fans
Sporting Lisbon fans will give Bento a warm welcome
Portuguese international Paulo Bento is on the verge of leaving Spanish club Real Oviedo and signing with Sporting Lisbon.

The 30-year-old defensive midfielder has been with Real Ovieda for four years, but is set to join the new Portuguese champions on a three-year deal.

Sporting are celebrating their first league title in 18 years, and their first success of any kind since winning the Portuguese Cup in 1995.

Bento is a member of Portugal's Euro 2000 squad that will face reigning champions Germany, England and Romania in Group A when the tournament kicks off June 10.
