Criciuma set to sign Daniel Carvalho
Brasileirão side Criciuma have announced on Friday that former CSKA Moscow midfielder Daniel Carvalho will undergo medical tests at the club in the coming days, with a view to signing a one-year contract with the newly promoted Serie A side.
Daniel Carvalho, 30, has now not played competitive football since October 2012 when he last represented Palmeiras before the end of his contract in December.
Criciuma, though, are willing to give the talented playmaker another shot at top flight football.
An important member of the CSKA that won the UEFA Cup in 2005, Daniel was also a regular member of the Brazil squad in the early period of Dunga's management.
Since his initial success, though, he has often struggled to maintain suitable physical conditioning and spent long spells on the sideline with injury.
Criciuma will play in the Brasileirão Série A this season, having achieved promotion last season with a second place finish in the Brazilian second tier.
