New blood at Braga

SC Braga have moved into the transfer market in a bid to improve on a disappointing season.
SC Braga have moved into the transfer market in a bid to improve on a disappointing campaign in the Portuguese Super Liga.

Scoring sensation
Following the club's 14th-placed finish, coach Jesualdo Ferreira has unveiled four new players, including the FC Maia striker Igor, leading scorer in the Portuguese second division. "I like to play in and around the penalty area, and am a cool customer whenever I get near goal," the 23-year-old said.

Irish international
Braga have snapped up a second forward in Irish international Dominic Foley, who arrives from English first division club Watford FC. Both strikers cost a minimal fee and have agreed two-year contracts. "I have come to Portugal to play in a more technical-minded league," said Foley, 26.

Defensive reinforcements
Another player to sign up until 2005 is Jorge Luís, the 27-year-old left-back who has joined from Varzim SC for an undisclosed amount. The fourth addition is right-back Éder, 22, who spent last season at SL Benfica but comes to the Primeiro de Maio stadium on a 12-month loan from Brazilian club Grêmio FBPA.
