Original source is "O Jogo" (the game) - them and "a bola" (the ball) are two of the more reliable sites in Portugal.

Was sent back from his current loan early as the manager didn't like his ill disciplined attitude.

What type of player is he?

He's strong as passing, in the air, tackling and has a decent number of interceptions. His main weakness is he's ill disciplined.

He likes to dribble on the ball, plays a lot of short passes and fouls a lot...

Yup, and doesn't sound like he's too bothered about changing his ways.

So sporting Lisbon are after their former player Ilori, but not this guy, who has a better CV would be cheaper and is younger. Says it all really. Avoid

In January 2018, it was announced that Semedo would be subjected to trial for an altercation in a bar in Valencia the previous November where he allegedly brandished a pistol and produced threats, while the player was nursing an injury. He was arrested again for a separate incident on 20 February, this time for supposedly tying up and assaulting a man in his home alongside two others, then proceeding to go to the victim's house to burglarise it, for the latter incident, he was placed in preventive detention after being charged with attempted murder.

<checks Footballers getting arrested thread>

One team mate McShane would probably avoid picking a fight with. Unfortunately, it very rarely ends well with players with this kind of personality.

We don't need troublemakers at this stage of the proceedings. Think we should steer clear.

I think we should sign him and get FA dispensation
for him to play with a pistol on his hip.

Bikey was a bit mental, but was more of a loveable rogue. This guy seems like a fcuking lunatic.

Turns out he was innocent:

Semedo’s agent, Catio Balde, however told Portuguese television network TSF on Wednesday that his client had been tricked.

“Ruben was a victim of fraud, a large-scale swindle, probably of a financial nature. Against this situation he didn’t react in the best possible way, but he was the victim. From what I’ve seen on Spanish television, it’s a regrettable situation and not correct, but Ruben wasn’t involved in this.

“The alleged kidnapping did not take place. It’s a total lie that there was a kidnapping and torture. The gun didn’t belong to Semedo even though they found it in his house,” Balde said.
