Bournemouth have signed Brazilian goalkeeper Neto on a free transfer from Barcelona.

The 33-year-old has agreed a 12-month contract with the Cherries.

Neto has been capped once by his country and made 21 appearances for Barcelona after joining them from La Liga rivals Valencia.

“To be able to bring in a player of Neto’s caliber is very pleasing,” Bournemouth chief executive Neil Blake said.

“This is a real coup for the club and we are delighted that he has chosen to join us. He has a huge amount of experience at the very top level of the game so I’m sure he will be a huge asset to us.”

Neto started his career at Paranaense in Brazil before moving to Italy with Fiorentina. He left for Juventus, where he won five trophies in two years and collected a Champions League runners-up medal, before heading to Spain.

He is the club’s fourth summer signing following the arrivals of Joe Rothwell, Ryan Fredericks and Marcus Tavernier.

Bournemouth started their Premier League campaign with one 2-0 win over Aston Villa on Saturday, following their promotion from the Championship.
