    And he signed off by playing one final game for the Lisbon giants.

    But he didn’t get the fairytale ending as Sporting were beaten 2-0 by Porto in the Portuguese equivalent of the League Cup final.

    Porro played the full 90 minutes and crashed the bar with a stunning effort, but he wasn’t able to claim silverware on his final appearance.

    And the 23-year-old appeared to be welling up when he waved goodbye to the Sporting fans for the final time.

    Porro stood there for a couple of seconds applauding before waving and then tapping his chest.

    The Sporting supporters responded by clapping back.

    He’s been with the club for two-and-a-half years but is now on the verge of moving to the Premier League.

    According to Fabrizio Romano, all the contracts have been signed and a verbal agreement has been reached with Spurs set to pay £39m.
