PSV MEDIA - PSV have completed the transfer of Gremio goalkeeper Cassio Ramos. The 20-year-old will sign a five-year deal at the Philips Stadium. The Brazilian goalkeeper, whose height is 6ft 4, 75 in (195 cm), arrived in Eindhoven on Thursday and underwent a medical. He will return to his native country this weekend to obtain the necessary official documents.

Brazil coach Dunga has called him up to his squad once and he featured in Brazil's U-20 team at the World Cup in Canada the past few weeks. He will put pen to paper on a five-year contract in Eindhoven. Ramos will add depth to the goalkeeping group, behind PSV's No.1 choice Gomes and Bas Roorda, who signed for PSV as standby goalkeeper. The tall stopper will first fly back to Brazil to obtain a work permit and will most likely join Ronald Koeman's squad, when they have returned from Russia. Cassio Ramos, who, just like many Brazilians, speaks Spanish reasonably, alongside his mother language Portuguese, will surely benefit from training together with his countryman Heurelho da Silva Gomes and goalkeeping coach Joop Hiele. Cassio Ramos is PSV's fifth Brazilian signing, following the arrivals of Gomes, Alcides, Jonathan and Fagner.
