Portuguese outfit Sporting have completed the signing of Parma's Bulgaria international striker Valeri Bojinov.
The 25-year-old has penned a five-year contract with Sporting following two seasons with Parma.
Bojinov joined Parma, initially on loan from Manchester City, before sealing a permanent move to the Serie A club.
The former Fiorentina and Juventus man has moved again and will now try and score goals in Lisbon.
Bojinov will wear the club's illustrious No.7 shirt after being given the thumbs up by former player Luis Figo.
"I asked (former Sporting player) Luis Figo for permission to wear the No.7 shirt," he told Darik radio.
"He's such a big player and I think it's respectful to ask him."
Bojinov is the club's fourth attacking addition following the captures of Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Diego Rubio and Andre Carrillo.
As part of the deal midfielder Jaime Valdes has been loaned to Parma.
