Mendes da Silva signs up for Salzburg

FC Salzburg coach Huub Stevens has signed his No1 transfer target after completing a move for AZ Alkmaar midfielder David Mendes da Silva, a fellow Dutchman.

FC Salzburg have signed AZ Alkmaar midfielder David Mendes da Silva on a three-year contract.

The 27-year-old arrives for an undisclosed fee having been a regular at AZ for four seasons which included a Dutch title triumph in 2008/09. Capped seven times by the Netherlands, Mendes da Silva had been named as the No1 transfer target for Salzburg's new Dutch coach Huub Stevens.

The right-sided player previously worked with Stevens' assistant Ton Lokhoff during a spell at NAC Breda. Including coaching staff, there are now six Dutchmen on Salzburg's books.

The Austrian titleholders begin their UEFA Champions League campaign with a home second qualifying round first-leg tie against Faroese side HB Tórshavn on Tuesday.
