Official: Sporting CP Sign Mozambique Defender Mexer

The Portuguese outfit have secured their first signing of the winter transfer window...
Portuguese giants Sporting CP have completed the transfer of Mozambique international defender Mexer from Maputo GD for an undisclosed fee.

The young defender has signed a two-and-a-half year contract at the Lisbon outfit. Mexer will join his new teammates on January 1, when the transfer market re-opens.

"It's a big dream to play for Sporting as they have always been my club. I am very happy and I hope to show my class," Mexer, whose full name is Edson Andre Sitoe, told the club's official website.

Sporting won't be able to field their new signing until February, as Mexer will be competing with Mozambique at the African Cup of Nations in Angola from January 10 to 31.
