García and Ewerthon bolster Zaragoza

Real Zaragoza have strengthened their attack with the signings of forward players Sergio García and Ewerthon.

Levante loan
Zaragoza have reportedly paid the Primera División champions €1.5m for García, who celebrated his 12-month loan at Levante UD last season by finishing as the team's seven-goal top scorer. Zaragoza coach Víctor Muñoz sees the 22-year-old as the ideal replacement for David Villa, who has left for Valencia CF.

Youth international
García, who arrives on a four-year contract, has been a regular for Spain at various youth levels. He was part of Armando Ufarte's Under-20 side that finished runners-up at the 2003 FIFA World Youth Championship.

Ewerthon impress
Ewerthon, 24, has penned a five-year deal and joins for an undisclosed fee. The Brazilian departs Germany after a successful four-year spell, having scored 47 goals in 119 Bundesliga games for Dortmund. Ewerthon, capped six times by Brazil, started his career at SC Corinthians Paulista.
