Cape Town Cup participants Sporting Lisbon are set to take Greek striker Kostas Mitroglou on loan from Fulham for the 2015/16 season.

Mitroglou is something of a misfit in West London with the Cottagers, and was a transfer target for Greek side Olympiacos (where the player was on loan last season) and Turkish club Besiktas.

However, Fulham now look set to send Mitroglou on loan to Sporting, and it will reportedly cost the Portuguese side 1-million Euros to secure his services for the whole season.

Should the move be completed, Mitroglou will become the second Fulham player to move to Sporting in the past week.

The Portuguese side recently confirmed the signing of Bryan Ruiz from the English club.

South African fans could see both Ruiz and Mitroglou in action later this month when Sporting take part in the Cape Town Cup.
