Victor Ibarbo close to Sagan Tosu move

Cagliari striker Victor Ibarbo is to fly out to Japan to finalise his move to Sagan Tosu, according to the reports.

The 26-year-old Colombian international is expected to join the J.League outfit after spending previous half-season loan at Panathinaikos.

The deal could move ahead and close on Monday, the latest in the move for Ibarbo away from Italian Serie A.

Ibarbo would be the third new foreign signing for Sagan Tosu this season who have already bought Argentinian defender Franco Sbuttoni and South Korean striker Cho Dong-geon.
