Benachour makes Guimarães switch

Tunisian international midfielder Selim Benachour has signed a one-year deal with Portuguese club Vitória SC.

Portuguese UEFA Cup hopefuls Vitória SC have signed Tunisian international Selim Benachour from Paris Saint-Germain FC.

One-year deal
The 23-year-old attacking midfielder has penned a one-season deal with the Guimaraes-based club, with a further 12-month option. The move ends a frustrating spell in the French capital during which Benachour made just eight league starts following his debut in July 2001.

Tunisia triumph
He enjoyed success on loan at FC Martigues and ES Troyes Aube Champagne, however, and furthered his reputation by helping Tunisia to African Cup of Nations glory in February 2004. Guimarães will hope he can be as influential for them as they look to build on their fifth-place finish last term.
