Official: Dynamo Kiev sign Santos attacker Andre

The Brazilian youngster will head to Ukraine...
Ukrainian powerhouse Dynamo Kiev have completed the transfer of promising youngster Andre from Brazilian outfit Santos for a reported fee of £6.7 million. Santos have confirmed the transfer on their official website.

Dynamo missed out on the Ukrainian league title last term and are therefore keen to add to their ranks in the summer transfer window. Head coach Valeri Gazzaev had set his sights on signing a new attacker and has now grabbed his desired attacking reinforcements with the arrival of Andre.

The 19-year-old attacker was considered to be one of the most promising youngsters in the Santos set-up, but struggled to secure regular first team action due to the competition from Ganso, Neymar and Robinho up front.

Andre has scored 28 goals in 47 official appearances for Santos. The young forward has signed a five-year deal with the Ukrainian titans.

Kiev previously secured the services of defender Goran Popov and midfielder Facundo Bertoglio.
