Genoa have confirmed that they have agreed to loan Sebastian Ribas to Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon.
The 23-year-old only joined the Italian outfit in the summer, but he didn’t make an appearance for the club.
Ribas, an Uruguayan, caught the eye of Rossoblu scouts last season thanks to his scoring form at French Ligue 2 club Dijon.
Sporting have the option to buy him outright at the end of the campaign should he prove to be a success.
Ribas, a striker, has also played for Inter and Spezia in his career to date.
