Chongqing Lifan have secured the signing of Fernandinho on a free transfer from Copa Libertadores champions Gremio.

Fernandinho had been with Gremio since July 2014, a spell which included unsuccessful loan stints with Italian side Verona and Flamengo.

The 32-year-old should have some assistance with regards to settling in at the Chinese Super League club, as he will join three other Brazilians in Hyuri, Alan Kardec and another Fernandinho, while Portuguese coach Paulo Bento took over in December.
