Sporting CP goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano has reportedly agreed to return to Serie A with SPAL next month.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio’s website, Viviano will join SPAL on a six-month loan, while a permanent deal could be negotiated at the end of the season.
The 33-year-old only joined Sporting last summer after four years as Sampdoria’s No 1, along with Stefano Sturaro and Sinisa Mihajlovic.
The Portuguese side armoured him with a €45m release clause, but a change of board and Coach resulted in him failing to make any appearances in the first half of 2018-19.
