Centre back set for Portuguese switch.
The agent of Manchester City defender Stefan Savic admits he could be on the move in January.
Sporting Lisbon are seeking a loan deal for Savic.
“It is true that he is on his way out of City in January and that he will leave on loan,” the defender’s agent, Zoran Stojadinovic, told O Jogo.
Whilst it’s not that big a surprise that a young defender brought in by Roberto Mancini would struggle to get first team football it is a little surprising that the Montenegro international would be sent out on loan in January given that centre back Kolo Toure will be on African Nations Cup duty, therefore theoretically handing the 20 year old a chance to make an impact, at least in cup competition.
Indeed one would have thought that the route into the Europa League, albeit unplanned and unwanted, would be a good way to blood the youngster and hand him competitive football.
