DONE DEAL: Belenenses sign Man Utd keeper Joel Castro Pereira

Manchester United goalkeeper Joel Castro Pereira has agreed a loan move to Belenenses.

The 20-year-old, who was part of Portugal's Olympic squad, is leaving Old Trafford for the second time on a temporary basis after representing Rochdale last term.

Pereira was on the bench for the first team's Europa League win over Midtjylland in February and deputised for James Weir as Under-21s captain when the young Reds clinched the title at Tottenham's White Hart Lane in May.

Ricardo Ribeiro left Belenenses in the summer and the Lisbon-based club's search for a new goalkeeper led them to pull off a late swoop for the United man.
