Oguchi Onyewu's tenuous club situation may be close to getting settled.

According to a report from Portuguese outlet A Bola, Onyewu is close to signing a deal with Portuguese power Sporting Lisbon.

Onyewu was loaned to FC Twente this past season from AC Milan, but the Dutch club did not act on its option to buy Onyewu's contract outright. He is still under contract with Milan, but reports from Portugal suggest that Milan would let Onyewu go on a free transfer.

Sporting Lisbon finished third in the Portuguese Liga last season and will participate in the 2011-2012 UEFA Europa League.

What do you think of the potential move for Onyewu?
