Chelsea are wrapping up the signing of released Hertha Berlin midfielder Mineiro.

Scolari's assistant, Flavio Murtosa, has revealed Mineiro is on the brink of a move to Stamford Bridge.

"We have practically completed the recruitment of Mineiro," Murtosa told Radio Bandeirantes.

"He was available, out of contract with the German club, and at this time we had the chance to hire him and satisfy our need [for a new midfielder]."
