Salgaocar FC on Thursday announced the signing of Brazilian centre-back Eder Monteiro Fernandes for the I-League 2015-16 season from Cypriot side Nea Salamina Famagusta FC.

The 32-year-old was most recently a part of the Marco Materazzi coached victorious Chennaiyin FC unit in the 2015 Indian Super League (ISL). 

The confirmation regarding the signing comes days after coach Malky Thomson reiterated the need to add quality to his defence line, having conceded four goals against Mohun Bagan. Eder is the fourth and final foreign acquisition for the Greens. Salgaocar already have the likes of Darryl Duffy, Martin Scott and Calvin Mbarga among their ranks.

The Goan outfit have lost both their opening I-League fixtures. They now face Mumbai FC at the Cooperage on Sunday.
