Willem II have confirmed the signing of Brazilian midfielder Leonardo Henrique Veloso from Atletico Mineiro.

The 20-year-old, who can also play in defence, has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with the Eredivisie club, with an option for a further two years - and Willem II technical director and interim coach Andries Jonker believes he will solve the club´s dearth of options on the left side.

"Veloso is a talented player and is left-footed," Jonker told club website "I prefer to play with left-footed players on the left. Our selection had only two left footed players, with Jose Valencia and Kevin Bobson, and I find that insufficient."
