Meli makes Sporting loan switch


Sporting CP have confirmed the season-long loan signing of Boca Juniors midfielder Marcelo Meli.

The Primera Liga club announced the deal, which includes a purchase option, on Saturday, two weeks ahead of the new league campaign.

Meli, 24, signed for Boca from Colon in 2014.

Jorge Jesus' side will be looking to end a 14-year wait to lift the top-flight crown.
