Caicedo set to leave Sporting early - report

Striker to return to England

Sporting are hoping to terminate the loan agreement with Manchester City for striker Felipe Caicedo in January, according to reports in England.

The Ecuadorian has struggled to make an impact at Alvalade, having failed to find the net so far since joining the Lions on a one-year deal in August.

English paper The Daily Mirror claims the 21-year-old has been deemed surplus to requirements by Carlos Carvalhal, and Sporting hope to send the player back to Manchester in January.

The move comes days after it was announced that another summer capture, Miguel Angulo, was to leave the club after just 97 days in the capital.

With the signing of Mozambique defender Edson Sitoe already confirmed for January, the Lisbon club are wasting no time in reshaping their first-team squad following a disastrous first half of the season.
