Sporting CP coach Jorge Jesus says he expects star player William Carvalho to start the 2015/16 season with the Portuguese club.

The midfielder, fresh from an outstanding U-21 European Championship campaign with Portugal, is being linked with Premier League giants Arsenal and Liverpool.

However, coach Jesus is adamant that Carvalho will remain with Sporting, at least for the new season.

"William is a certainty. Sporting has young people who are already certainties, they are not hopes or doubts. William will be enhanced if the team is also,” Jesus told the media.

"He's a player with potential to play more. I have no doubt that with me he will play more."

Jesus will bring his Sporting side to South Africa for the Cape Town Cup later this month.
