Seedorf clinches Botafogo move
AC Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf has left the club to join Brazilian side Botafogo on a two-year deal.

However, he has now decided to ply his trade in Brazil, in a move that Botafogo claim is the most lucrative deal ever handed out to a foreign player in the country. The club announced the deal in a statement which read: "Botafogo have formalised a contract with the Dutch midfielder Clarence Seedorf, who is 36. Seedorf has signed a deal for two years with Botafogo, it is the biggest contract for a foreigner made by a Brazilian football club." Rio de Janeiro-based Botafogo sit eighth in the Campeonato Brasileiro with three wins from six matches.
