Porto add Spanish keeper

Porto's dramatic squad overhaul continued apace on Wednesday with Spanish goalkeeper Andres Fernandez becoming the latest new player to sign on at the Estadio do Dragao.

The 27-time Portuguese champions have bolstered their ranks with no fewer than 10 summer signings as they look to make amends for last season's disappointing third-placed finish.

Fernandez has swapped Osasuna for the Portuguese coast following the Pamplona club's relegation from the Primera Division and is now expected to compete for the gloves with Helton, Fabiano and fellow new boy Ricardo.


Kehl steps down as Dortmund captain

Veteran midfielder Sebastian Kehl has stepped down as Borussia Dortmund captain as he plans for his final season as a professional footballer.

The 34-year-old announced the decision in a press conference on Wednesday, saying he preferred to hand over to a successor now while still being around to offer his support.

This important role has filled me with enjoyment and pride. It makes sense now to pass the baton on.

For now I will have the opportunity to stand by my successor and give advice and practical help and support with my experience.

Now the time is right.

– Kehl was speaking on the club's official website.
