Report: Sporting Kansas City close to deal for Fluminense defender Igor Julião
Sporting Kansas City are believed to be closing in on a deal for Fluminense defender Igor Julião.
The 19 year-old has been strongly linked with a move to the Major League Soccer side in recent months.
Comments made today by head coach Peter Vermes suggest a new signing is set to be announced soon, with Julião strongly expected to be the Wizards latest recruit.
“We’re looking to add some players and needed to make the room — that’s all,” Vermes said, as reported by kansascity.com. “(The deal) is close, but I wanted to go ahead and get it done. Hopefully it gets done in the next day or two.”
