Sport Lisboa and Benfica settled the loans of Bruno Varela and Alex Pinto to Ajax and Gil Vicente, respectively. The loan deal, in both cases, is valid for the 2019/20 season.

The goalkeeper, who played 35 matches for the eagles in 2017/18, was loaned to Ajax in the middle of the 2018/19 season, and the coach Ten Hag is once again counting on the Portuguese player contribution for the new season.

Alex Pinto, 20, is a right-back and, after two seasons representing Benfica B, will have the chance to play in the 1st Division on loan at Gil Vicente.

At Benfica since 2017/18, coming from V. Guimarães, the defender carried out a total of 59 matches for the B team of the eagles, 32 of which in 2018/19.
