FourFourTwo understands 21-year-old Mabil will be unveiled as a Pacos Ferreira player in the coming days on loan.

Mabil is currently contracted with Danish club FC Midjtylland, with three years remaining on his deal.

The former Adelaide United man spent the 2016-17 campaign on loan with Danish Superliga battlers Esbjerg, where he played 29 matches and scored four goals.

Mabil's future has been in limbo since Esbjerg's relegation but the move to Portugal sees him link up with another ex-Adelaide man Dylan McGowan.

The winger's agent Buddy Farah has engineered both deals with the Portuguese club.

Mabil struggled for regular game-time in his first season at Midtjylland following his move from Adelaide in 2015.
