In an interview with pressmen after signing the contract, Moomin said the move represents a giant step in his career and will make the best from it.
“It is a good step for my career and I will sacrifice and work hard to be successful. Porto is a good club with a history of producing so many world class talents so I’m hoping to walk in the paths of the great players who have come through the system,” he said.
“I believe I have what it takes to stay beyond the loan period and I will give everything to show the coaches my worth,” he added.
Moomin becomes the second youngster from Charity Stars FC to sign for a top European side.
