Brazilian striker Leandro Damiao da Silva has arrived here to finalise his move to Real Betis. He is expected to commit until the end of the current season with a contract that can be extended for three years.

Damiao comes from Brazilin club Cruzeiro, with which he ended the contract in late 2015. He arrives at Betis on a free transfer and said on arrival on Monday that he is “very happy” to play in La Liga, reports Efe.

A delegate of the Betis first team, Victor Antequera, received the South American striker and accompanied him to the club offices, where he will sign after a medical examination.

The Brazilian striker, 26, had never played for clubs outside Brazil until now, having started his career at Internacional, with which he won a Copa Libertadores and a Recopa Sudamericana.
