Porto have signed Sporting captain Joao Moutinho for €11m.

The 23-year-old midfielder has agreed a five-year contract in a transfer Portuguese media said was the most expensive between two clubs in the country.

Moutinho has made 26 appearances for Portugal, scoring two goals and playing at UEFA EURO 2008, but he failed to make Carlos Queiroz's squad for the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™.

The transfer will also see Nuno Coelho, 24, leaving Sporting for Porto on a deal that runs through to 2014.
