Real Zaragoza have brought Edmilson back to Spain.

Edmilson, who has won more than 40 caps for his country and was part of the 2002 World Cup-winning squad, has penned an initial five-month contract with Zaragoza with the option of a further season.

The 33-year-old midfielder has plenty of experience of the Primera Division having spent four seasons at Barcelona and another at Villarreal prior to returning to his homeland with Palmeiras last year.

He becomes the seventh new arrival at Zaragoza since the start of the month, following Matteo Contini, Roberto Jimenez, Adrian Colunga, Humberto Suazo, Jiri Jarosik and Eliseu.

Zaragoza climbed one place to 18th today after defeating fellow strugglers Tenerife 3-1, with Colunga and Suazo both on the mark.
