The former Serbian national player, Ivan Nikčević, moves from Wisła Płock to Sporting Clube de Portugal.

The Portuguese top club Sporting Clube de Portugal continues to rearm their squad. Previously they signed Carlos Ruesga, Janko Bozovic, Michal Kopco, Igor Zabic and Matej Asanin for the upcomming season. Now also the serbian left wing Ivan Nikčević comes to Portugal.

35-year-old Ivan Nikčević has played 135 caps and scored 491 goals for Serbia, with whom he won a silver medal at home at the European Championship 2012.
