Sporting Braga goalkeeper Beto has admitted that he is likely to remain at Sevilla after the end of the current campaign.
The 30-year-old was signed on an emergency loan in January after Diego Lopez was sold to Real Madrid, and he has since impressed at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
With the club in a difficult financial situation, they would be certainly better off making Beto’s loan deal permanent than splashing the money on another goalkeeper.
O Jogo understands that the player was offered a new three-year deal by los Rojiblancos, which means they are ready to meet the €1.5 million buy-out clause.
Beto himself admits that he is happy at Sevilla and it appears he won’t be returning to Portugal any time soon.
“There is an interest, I believe that everything will be resolved in mid May,” Beto confessed to O Jogo.
“I feel very well in Seville. I was very well received by the fans and adaptation to the demands of the Spanish league also went very well.”
Prior to joining Sevilla, the experienced keeper also represented Leixoes, Porto, CFR Cluj and Sporting Braga.
