Brazilian club Internacional has signed Uruguayan striker Diego Forlan, voted the best player at the 2010 World Cup.

Internacional says the 33-year-old Forlan signed a contract until July 2015 and will be officially introduced to fans on Saturday.

The striker had been playing with Inter Milan since transferring to the Italian club from Atletico de Madrid in 2011. He also previously played for Manchester United and Villareal.

Forlan is one of the top foreign players to be signed by a Brazilian club.

The announcement comes just days after Botafogo said it signed former Dutch midfielder Clarence Seedorf.

Internacional is one of Brazil's most traditional clubs. It won the Copa Libertadores, Latin America's most important club competition, in 2006 and 2010.
