Julio Enciso is understood to have said farewell to his colleagues in Paraguay – including his idol Oscar Cardozo.

The teenager is close to signing for Albion, according to his club Libertad.


The club have published photos of what is said to be a final training session and his goodbye to members of the playing squad.

They include Cardozo, the 39-year-old Paraguay and former Benfica striker who has been a big influence in Enciso’s fledgling career.

There is as yet no confirmation that a deal with Albion has been completed.
