Rio de Janeiro, Feb 2 (IANS) Botafogo have completed the signing of forward Luiz Henrique from Spain’s Real Betis, the Brazilian Serie A club said.

The 23-year-old agreed to a five-year deal reportedly worth 16 million euros plus up to four million euros in add-ons.

Botafogo said the transaction represented a record transfer fee in the South American country, reports Xinhua.

“[It] is the biggest signing in the history of Brazilian football,” the Rio de Janeiro side said in a statement.

Henrique is expected to undergo a medical check in the coming days ahead of his official unveiling as a Botafogo player, the club added.
