Philadelphia Union have announced on their official website that they have signed Brazilian midfielder Jose Kleberson.
The veteran midfielder arrives at the club on loan from Esporte Clube Bahia, and will occupy a Designated Player and international roster spot.
Kleberson will join the team once he passes medical examination and receives US P-1 Visa and International Transfer Certificate.
The MLS side have produced a major coup by signing the experienced midfielder, who has a very successful career behind him.
After leaving Atletico Paranense, Kleberson enjoyed spells at Manchester United, Besiktas and Flamengo, among other clubs.
He has represented Brazil 32 times and scored 2 goals in the process, and played an important role as the Seleccao won the 2002 World Cup in South Korea and Japan.
Kleberson has been plying his trade in Brazil ever since he left Besiktas in the summer of 2007, and no doubt he will enjoy the fresh challenge in his career.
