ould chikh ffTwente have accepted a €1.5 million offer from the Portuguese champions for the winger, who is considered to be one of the brightest talents in Dutch football. Ould-Chikh will now undergo a medical in Portugal before signing a five-year-deal.

The Tukkers offered Ould-Chikh an extension to his contract which ends next summer, but after the Netherlands U19 international rejected the new deal, talks were ended with Twente unable to afford the youngsters wage demands.

Ould Chikh made his Twente debut in May 2014, and scored his first Eredivisie goal in January against Heracles. Overall the 17-year-old made 16 league appearances for Twente, scoring once.
