"We are really delighted that we have managed to bring Jesus to the football club because we believe that he's a special talent," Vieira said.

"Jesus has got talent, he's got pace, he's a really good dribbler, and he's somebody who can assist and score goals as well. For a player of such a young age, he has a really strong character and I think he will be a great addition."
