Turkish side Besiktas have confirmed this afternoon the signing of Shakhtar Donetsk striker Dentinho.

The Brazilian has joined the Turkish Super League side on a loan deal until the summer of 2014 and is in line to make his debut against giants Galatasaray.

A permanent transfer at the end of the loan has been reported, although there is nothing official to suggest a fee is already in place for the 24-year old.

He initially started his career in his native Brazil with Corinthians, where he played just under 100 games for the club scoring 26 goals.

After his impressive performances in South America, Shakhtar Donetsk decided to add to their contingent of Brazilian players with the signing of the player on a five year contract for a fee believed to be around £7 million.

Since his arrival in 2011, he hasn’t hit the heights of his potential in the Ukraine, and a move to Turkey could be an ideal opportunity to showcase his talent.
