Diego Capel's uncle confirms Sevilla midfielder is set to sign for Sporting Lisbon

The Spanish youngster is on the verge of completing a move abroad after becoming frustrated at the lack of playing time at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan
Sevilla winger Diego Capel, is poised to join Sporting Lisbon, the player's uncle has confirmed.

The Spain international has been strongly linked with a switch to the Estadio de Alvalade after a source close to the player revealed on Sunday that Sporting had launched talks with a view to signing him.

Capel is now set to reinforce one of Sporting's weakest departments after the two clubs reportedly agreed on a €6 million switch.

"It all happened so fast. He will travel tomorrow [Tuesday] to Portugal and will be presented in Lisbon on Wednesday. He will sign for five years," Capel's uncle Carioca Capel told Maisfutebol.

The 23-year-old, who broke through Sevilla's youth ranks in 2004, had a disappointing last season at the club and was pushed down the pecking order as a result.

He is set to become the 12th summer signing made by the Portuguese club, who finished third in the league last season.
