Flamengo have confirmed that they have signed Brazil left-back Andre Santos from Arsenal.

The 30-year-old defender, who has won 24 caps for his country, had previously been on loan in his homeland with Gremio.

However, he has now made a permanent switch to Flamengo, where he once had a loan spell in 2005-06.

The Rio club claim to have signed Santos on a free transfer, and have handed him a two-year deal.

Flamengo are managed by Mano Menezes, whom Santos played under during his stint in charge of the Brazil national team.
