Metalist signs Brazilian striker Willian

Metalist Kharkiv signed Brazilian forward Willian Gomes from Corinthians on a five-year contract Saturday.

The 25-year-old Willian helped Corinthians win the 2012 Copa Libertadores and will attempt to help Metalist fill the void left by the departure of Marko Devic to Ukrainian rival Shakhtar Donetsk.
