Luíz and Frechaut trade places

FC Dinamo Moskva have signed Brazilian left-back Jorge Luíz from SC Braga in a €3m deal that sees Portugal's Frechaut join Braga in part-exchange.
FC Dinamo Moskva have signed Brazilian left-back Jorge Luíz from SC Braga for around €3m with Dinamo's Portuguese international midfielder Frechaut moving to Braga as part of the deal.

Frechaut leaves
Luíz, 29, played for Fluminense FC and Santa Cruz FC in Brazil before leaving for Portugal in 2001. He spent a year with Varzim SC then joined Braga, for whom he made 69 Liga appearances over two and a half seasons. Frechaut, 28, returns to Portugal after 12 months in the Russian capital. He played 15 Premier-Liga games for Dinamo after arriving from Boavista FC on a three-year contract last January.

Fernández signing
Both sides have also made further additions to their squad, with Dinamo adding more defensive steel by recruiting 22-year-old Argentinian centre-back Leandro Fernández from CA River Plate. Meanwhile, Braga have signed Brazilian striker Matheus on a three-and-a-half year contract after the 23-year-old departed Portuguese second division side FC Marco.
