Cruzeiro have confirmed they're signing Barcelona striker Keirrison.

Keirrison was training with the Barcelona B squad, but it was announced yesterday he would be returning to Brazil with Cruzeiro on a six month loan.

"A deal for Keirrison is done, he will arrive tomorrow [Wednesday] in Belo Horizonte, to pass a medical," Dimas Fonseca told Lancenet.

"On Thursday, I will return from Curitiba so that he can sign a contract."
