The former Werder and Santos man will be presented as a Verdao player on Tuesday after training with the club for more than two months as negotiations continued.Palmeiras has confirmed that the transfer saga surrounding Wesley has finally come to a happy conclusion, as the player officially completed a 6 million euro move from Germany's Werder Bremen.
The former Santos midfielder, 24, has been training with Palmeiras since the beginning of 2012 in the hope of sealing a transfer back to his native country. The Brazilian club's attempts to finish negotiations, however, had been frustrated by disagreements with Bremen both in the amount to pay as well as in the structure of the payments.
A deal was finally struck after third-party investors agreed to take on some of the financial burden, and in the early hours of Monday morning Palmeiras and Wesley announced the transfer via a video released on the club's website.
"I am very excited. I have been training at Palmeiras for a while now. Since I was in Europe I have had several offers, but when Palmeiras' interest came up I was delighted and did not have to think twice," the midfielder beamed on the transmission.
Wesley, who spent two years at Bremen, will be presented as a Palmeiras player on Tuesday and could feature in the first team as early as Wednesday evening.
