Sevilla have snapped up Brazilian starlet Adriano Correia from Coritiba as they look to reinforce their defence for the second half of the season.
The 20-year-old left back has signed a deal with the Andalucian club until 2010, that includes a buy-out clause of 50 million euros.
Correia is highly rated in Brazil and played in the Copa America last year alongside two of his new team-mates, Julio Baptista and Renato.
He was also part of the Under-20 side that won the World Championships and is being groomed as Roberto Carlos' replacement in the full squad. Sevilla
have announced that the player will arrive at the club on Saturday and will be presented on Monday, before preparing to make his debut against
Barcelona on January 30.
