Former Arsenal midfielder Denilson has joined UAE side Al Wahda.
The Brazilian has signed a three-year deal with the Emirati club after a two-year spell with Brazilian outfit Sao Paulo.
Prior to that, the 27-year-old spent seven years with Arsenal, where his contract was mutually terminated in 2013.
"It's always a good thing to try to live in a new country and discover new things. These are important moments for my family and me," Denilson told the local press.
"I've heard a lot about Al Wahda and Abu Dhabi and about life in the UAE. I promise to give my best and to make my best efforts with the team and for the team.
"I wasn't apprehensive at all to take on this new challenge. There are many players who don't appreciate moving to play in the Middle East, but I learnt that football here is good and there's great passion for it.
"I'm looking forward to meeting Al Wahda's fans on the pitch and I intend to present myself well at the club in order to achieve championships."
