Sporting announced the signing of Taynan da Silva, who arrives at Alvalade from Kairat Almaty, a team that the lions won in the final of the last Futsal Champions League.
Despite being born in Brazil, Taynan, 26, has Kazakh nationality and was elected to the top five in the European competition last season.
"I am very satisfied. Any futsal athlete wants to play in Sporting, which is a very big club and it is a great pleasure to be part of it. I signed up because of the club's history and respect around the world. Everyone speaks well of Sporting. Portugal and the city of Lisbon were also important in this decision and when the proposal came up, I did not think twice, "Taynan told the Lions newspaper.
