Braga bring in three more recruits

Brazilian defenders Léo Fortunato and Eduardo, and Senegalese striker Ladji Keita have become the latest signings at SC Braga as they prepare to make their UEFA Champions League debut.

SC Braga's preparations for their UEFA Champions League debut have continued apace with the signings of Brazilian defenders Léo Fortunato and Eduardo, and Senegalese striker Ladji Keita.

The 27-year-old Fortunato has arrived from EC Cruzeiro on a one-season deal with the option of a further three. Compatriot Eduardo, 21, has joined from CR Botafogo on a three-year contract and is "excited about this huge step in my career". The sentiments were echoed by the 27-year-old Keita, who moves from Braga's Liga rivals Vitória FC having scored ten goals in 27 league games last season.

The 2009/10 Portuguese runners-up have been busy rebuilding this summer, with the latest trio of signings joining three other newcomers at the picturesque Estádio Municipal: Spanish forward José Collado, Nigerian defender Uwa Echiéjilé and striker Leandro Salino. Braga enter the UEFA Champions League in the third qualifying round at the end of July.
