Porto's Postiga in loan move to St Etienne
LISBON, Dec 12 (Reuters) - Porto striker Helder Postiga has joined French club St Etienne on a six-month loan deal, the Portuguese Premier League team said on their website on Monday.
No financial details were disclosed but media reports said the two clubs had agreed a fee of €500,000 for the loan and €6 million if the Ligue 1 side decide to take up a permanent option on the player at the end of the season.
Portuguese international Postiga, who has won 21 caps, began his career at Porto and moved back to the club in July 2004 following one season in England with Tottenham Hotspur.
The 23-year-old Postiga says he wants regular first-team soccer ahead of next year's World Cup finals in Germany.
