DONE DEAL: Sporting Gijon coach Abelardo happy with swoop for Barcelona fullback Douglas

Sporting Gijon coach Abelardo is happy with their swoop for Barcelona fullback Douglas Pereira.

Abelardo was very happy with the arrival of Douglas from Barcelona, whom he called a versatile footballer who can play on both flanks, join the attack, help the team and "arrived free".

Douglas is the 12th player the Asturian team have signed this season. Abelardo said: "If all the signings go well, it will be brilliant."

Of Douglas he added: "He comes from Barcelona and before that Sao Paulo, two great teams. He's very complete, and versatile."
