Hamburg sign Brazil defender Douglas Santos to five-year deal

Douglas Santos helped Brazil win their first Olympic gold medal in Rio de Janeiro.

Bundesliga side Hamburg have signed Brazilian Olympic gold medalist Douglas Santos from Brazilian club Atletico Mineiro on a five-year deal.

The agreement was reached shortly before the German transfer window closed on Wednesday. Santos had already passed a physical for the German club, Atletico Mineiro said in a statement. 

Hamburg gave no details about the deal, but German media reports put the transfer at between €7-10 million ($7.79-11.13m).

Santos, a left-back, was in Brazil's squad that beat Germany in the Olympic final earlier this month in Rio de Janeiro.

He signed with Atletico Mineiro in 2014 and helped them to a state championship title in 2015.

His home club said they retain a portion of his rights should Hamburg decide to sell him to another club.
