In other news according to Portuguese sports daily Abola we have taken a young midfielder called Nuno Coehlo on loan from Porto. He has never played for their first team but has been on loan to weaker Portuguese sides for the past few seasons. Supposedly he is a deep lying central midfielder (think Tiago/Maniche) with a wicked shot. I've found proof of the wicked shot here. Hasn't been confirmed yet so we shall have to wait and see. He is a pretty much unknown prospect, some of the Porto fans I spoke to had never even heard of him. Perhaps he is for the B team. All should be made clear in the coming days.
