FC Twente to win race for Barcelona midfielder Oriol Busquets

FC Twente are set to win the race for Barcelona midfielder Oriol Busquets' signature.

Sport says Busquets is set to leave Barcelona B and get regular, competitive playing time with FC Twente in the Eredivisie this season.

Both clubs are finalising the details of a 12-month loan deal - without an option to make it permanent - which would see the young midfielder take the next step in his development.

Barça will pay part of the player's wages. Busquets had the opportunity to join Udinese (Serie A) as well as Utrecht (Eredivisie) but opted for Twente.

He's expected to join up with his new team over the course of the weekend.
