The 32-year-old Brazilian, who counts Porto, Atletico Madrid and AEK Athens among his former clubs, was a free agent after leaving Sao Paulo.

Assuncao has passed his medical with Depor and signed for the remainder of this season plus two more. There is also the option of a further season after that.

Assuncao said on his new club's website: "I'm very pleased, happy and grateful to come to a club as great as Depor and to be given the opportunity to return to Spanish football."

Depor last week installed Domingos Paciencia as their new coach following the sacking of Jose Luis Oltra. In his first match in charge, Domingos guided Depor to a 1-0 win over fourth-placed Malaga on Saturday, lifting the Galician club off the bottom of the Primera Division table.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
