Benfica have signed right-back Luis Filipe from Sporting Braga.

The 28-year-old has signed a four-year deal with the Lisbon based club and becomes their second signing of the week following the capture of American teenager Freddy Adu. This will be the second time Filipe has worked with coach Fernando Santos after a spell with Sporting Lisbon four years ago, and he is delighted to be making the move.

He said: "Signing for Benfica is a dream turned real."
