His loan-deal ended with Telstar and Soto was set to return to Norwich City since he has a contract with the English side until June 2023. Soto’s performances with Telstar awoke the interest of FC Porto, who wanted to sign him for the new season.

After weeks of negotiations, the Portuguese side has reached an agreement for the loan of Sebastian Soto that according to reports the deal includes a 1 million euro buy option. The USMNT striker has yet to make his debut with Norwich since arriving in the summer of 2020, but the bosses are ready to let him go for the right fee.

According to Maisfutebol, FC Porto want Soto to establish himself with the ‘B’ team, but he will be training with the senior squad. The 20-year-old is set to arrive in Portugal on Wednesday so he can undergo a medical examination and be formally presented.
