Brazil defender Eliezio to play for Portugal's Porto

Brazil defender Eliezio to play for Portugal's Porto

Brazil defender Eliezio reached a deal to play for Portugal's FC Porto on a loan from Cruzeiro on Thursday.
Eliezio, who was playing with Brazil's Under-20 squad in the South American championship in Paraguay, was loaned to Porto until June, Cruzeiro said on its Web site.
The Portuguese club will not pay for the transfer, and in return extended the loan contracts of some of its players at Cruzeiro.
Porto will have an option to sign the player after the loan expires.
The 19-year-old Eliezio, whose full name is Eliezio Santos Santana, arrived at Cruzeiro in 2006 after playing for Japan's Urawa Reds.
According to Brazilian media, Porto also was negotiating to acquire Colombian striker Wason Renteria, who was released by Brazil's Internacional on Wednesday.
