Indian Super League side FC Goa have swooped for a second former Arsenal player in the form of left-back Andre Santos.

Goa recently completed the capture of Robert Pires, with the Arsenal legend signing on to participate in the three-month league.

Now Goa have followed up their signing of Pires by completing a deal for Santos.

The Indian side expect Santos to now link up with the squad, ahead of preparations for the first season of the Indian Super League.


Santos joined Arsenal from Turkish outfit Fenerbahce in 2011, but struggled to cement a regular spot in the side.


The 31-year-old was loaned out to Gremio in his homeland in 2013, before completing a permanent move to Flamengo.

Goa will hope to have the 31-year-old, who has won 24 caps for Brazil, available for their Indian Super League opener against Chennaiyin FC on 15th October.
