Guimarães star Tozé set to leave at the end of the season amid interest from overseas

Vitoria SC midfielder Tozé is to leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the current campaign.

Tozé has been a top performer for Guimarães this season, predominantly used on the right wing and contributing 5 goals and 3 assists in his 24 league outings.

His efforts have helped Guimarães earn a fifth place spot in the Portuguese top fight.

Some of his goals have been crucial, his strike against Sporting earlier this season the only one of the game, earning his side an impressive 3 points against one of the traditional "Big Three".

He also bagged a goal against Porto to help Guimarães come from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at the Dragão, one of the more surprising comebacks you're likely to see. His brace against Feirense also meant his side earned a crucial 2-1 victory over bottom-of-the-table Feirense.

It is no wonder, therefore, that Vitoria are keen on extending Tozé's contract beyond the end of next season.

However, due to financial limitations, meeting his demands has proven difficult, and with wealthier clubs interested in the 26-year old midfielder, it was always going to be impossible to keep hold of him.

Two clubs have emerged as frontrunners to sign Tozé, with current Turkish strugglers Fenerbahce keen on bolstering their squad.

Turkish table-toppers Istanbul Basaksehir are also interested in bringing him in.
