Espanyol secure Simao signature
The Catalan club revealed the 32-year-old has agreed a two-year
deal subject to passing a medical.
Simao, who has spent the last 18 months in Turkey with Besiktas,
is no stranger to Spanish football. He had a spell with Barcelona
earlier in his career, and has also spent three-and-a-half years at
Atletico Madrid, with whom he won the Europa League and European
Super Cup in 2010.
Espanyol, who begin the new top-flight season at Mallorca on
Saturday, have also bolstered their ranks with the signing of
Spanish World Cup-winning left-back Joan Capdevila this summer.
