The son of football great Diego Maradona is close to joining a third-division Argentine club. Diego Sinagra Maradona - often known as Diego Junior - is expected to join the club El Porvenir.

The club's coach says the paperwork is being completed with Diego Junior expected to arrive next week in Argentina.

Diego Junior was born in Italy in 1986, the offspring of Maradona and an Italian woman Cristina Sinagra, while he was playing with Italian club Napoli.

Diego Junior has had little contact with his father, and has none of his football talent.
