FC Augsburg have strengthened their defensive options with the loan signing of Portugal U20s captain Renato Veiga from Sporting Lisbon until 31st December 2023.

FCA have also agreed a buy option for the 19-year-old, who came through the Sporting academy and can play in both defensive midfield and at centre-back. The 1.90-metre-tall left-footer has played the full 90 minutes in five of his side’s six UEFA Youth League matches this season.

“As one of Europe’s top leagues, I’ve followed the Bundesliga for a while, so I’m really excited to get the chance to show what I can do at FCA. Augsburg have a coach who puts his faith in young players, and I’m convinced that this is the right move for me at the right time,” said Veiga.

“Renato Vaiga is a defensive all-rounder and with his physical attributes, his tackling ability and his strong left foot, he is a smart addition to our squad. He comes across as very mature for a man of his age, which is why he captains Portugal at U20 level. Nevertheless, we want to give him time and the best possible support during this one-year loan so that he can reach his full potential,” said FCA sporting director Stefan Reuter.
