Portuguese striker Edu Ferreira has been diagnosed with cancer. The 19-year-old forward had been with Primeira Liga side Boavista since 2014 spending time with the Under-19s before making it through to the senior team this season. He signed a two-year contract with the Panthers in July but is now set to begin treatment for the ailment.
The club have offered their full backing for the player pledging to support him financially by opening a joint account in order to raise funds for his treatment.
