Palmeiras signs Brazilian striker Alemao from Japanese club

Four-time Brazilian champion Palmeiras has signed striker Alemao from Japan's Kyoto Purple Sanga.
The 23-year-old player, who last year also played for Japanese club Yokohama FC, will be officially introduced to fans on Monday, Palmeiras said Saturday on its Web site.
Transfer details were not released.
The striker began his career with Coritiba, moving to Japanese soccer after the 2004 season.
Palmeiras also said it reached a deal to transfer midfielder Diego Souza to Uruguay's Rentistas. Souza was expected to move from the Uruguayan club to Japan's Tokyo Verdy on loan.
Palmeiras, the 1999 Copa Libertadores champion, has won its first three matches in the 2007 Sao Paulo state championship.
