Barcelona have completed the signing of Sevilla wing-back Adriano.

The left-sided player, who can play at full-back or in midfield, has signed a four-year contract, with the option of a further season, as he completed his move from Sevilla.

Adriano, capped eight times by Brazil, signed the contract with Barca president Sandro Rosell at lunchtime on Saturday and will be officially presented at the Nou Camp on Monday.

Barca announced a €90million release clause has been written into the contract of Adriano, who is thought to have cost the Spanish champions €9.5million from Sevilla, with a possible €4million due on top in performance-related payments.

Adriano is the second new addition to Pep Guardiola's squad following the arrival of Spain striker David Villa from Valencia.
