Buenos Aires - The son of soccer great Diego Maradona is close to joining a third-division Argentine club.
Diego Maradona Sinagra - often known as Diego Junior - is expected to join the club El Porvenir. The club's coach says the paperwork is being completed and that the midfielder is expected to arrive next week in Argentina.
Diego Junior was born in Italy in 1986, the offspring of a relationship Maradona had with an Italian woman, Cristina Sinagra, while he was playing with Italian club Napoli.
"I love Argentine football and to play there is something I've wished to do," Diego Junior told the Argentine sports daily Ole.
El Porvenir coach Luis Ventura said on his Twitter feed that signing Diego Junior "would not cost the club a cent, but could generate interest and income."
Diego Junior has had little contact with his father and is nowhere near as talented as his father, with his career limited to lower-level clubs in Italy.
