BARCELONA, Spain (AP) - Barcelona has agreed to loan midfielder Alen Halilovic for a season to fellow Spanish league club Sporting Gijon.

The 19-year-old Croat played in Barcelona’s reserve team last season after arriving from Dinamo Zagreb.

Halilovic made his debut for Barcelona’s first team in the Copa del Rey in January.

Newly promoted Sporting plays its league opener against Real Madrid on Sunday.
