Siena striker Zé Eduardo confirms Vasco da Gama move
Siena striker Zé Eduardo has confirmed he is “to all intents and purposes” a Vasco da Gama player.
Eduardo, 25, was on loan from Genoa after barely featuring for the club since joining in 2011 due to a series of injuries.
The Brazilian has reiterated his unhappiness in Italy and recently revealed he had received an offer from an unnamed club in Brazil.
Zé Eduardo has now confirmed he is on the verge of moving to Vasco, which is rumoured to be a season-long loan deal.
He said: "I am to all intents and purposes a Vasco da Gama player now. There are no problems with the transfer and I can’t wait to get my form back.
"Before coming to Italy I never had injuries, but due to the cold weather I’ve consistently had problems.
"This is why I’m happy to be going back to the warmth of Rio. I want to play because, like so many, I dream of a place in the Seleçao for the 2014 World Cup. I am a Vasco player now and I feel happy."
The striker was on the verge of a transfer to AC Milan in August until he refused to train with the Rossoneri on a trial basis and then opted to join Siena instead.
Eduardo also had a medical with Premier League outfit West Ham in January 2012, but the proposed loan deal collapsed.
