Sporting sign Tiago Ilori
Sporting have completed the signing of Reading's Portuguese centreback for approximately €2.5million.
Ilori, now 25, was at Sporting as a youngster, joining in 2006 when just 13 years of age, starting out as a striker before reverting to his centreback position.
He went on to make 12 Primeira Liga appearances for the Lisbon club before earning an illustrious move to English Premier League side Liverpool.
That high-profile transfer did not go to plan though, and he only played 3 times for the club, sent out on loan to the likes of Bordeaux, Granada and Aston Villa in the process before moving to Reading on a permanent deal.
Now managed by compatriot Jose Gomes, Ilori played 19 league games this season for the Championship strugglers, who currently sit in the relegation zone of the English second tier.
Ilori has now officially completed his return to the Lisbon club.
