Watford defender Miguel Layun spent this season, on loan, at Porto, who had the option to sign the player permanently.
Yesterday, Porto confirmed through their official newsletter 'Dragões Diário' (via O Jogo) they've completed a permanent deal for the player. It was reported Porto had agreed a fee of £4.5m for Layun with Watford.
Porto released a statement: "The Mexican was on loan from Watford, but our club reached an agreement with the English club. If Layún was already a player in the style of Porto, now he will have a contract with Porto."
Things could get a bit tricky for Porto, if you ask the player, who confirmed, last night, that he is yet to sign a contract with the Portuguese side.
Layun told Mexican newspaper Record(via Portuguese website Record):"Right now I'm waiting for my agent news. Nobody has told me yet it's official. For now, I have not signed anything. I am calm, I love what I do. There are rumors that I have already signed for FC Porto, but nothing has materialized."
Record insist Layun will be tied to Porto until 2020, and it's only a matter of time, but the player's comment makes you think something is going behind the scene. There is a chance the player is forcing the club to pay him higher wages, and we should wait and see, if Porto can agree a deal with the player.
