Brazilian Mineiro has joined Chelsea on a free transfer to boost Luiz Felipe Scolari's midfield options.

Scolari announced over the weekend that he was set to bring in the 33-year-old and Chelsea have now confirmed the signing.

Mineiro left Hertha Berlin at the end of last season and as such was available outside the transfer window.

Scolari decided to move quickly for Mineiro after Michael Essien suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury that will sideline him for several months.

With Claude Makelele also having left Stamford Bridge over the summer, Scolari felt that he needed another defensive midfielder.

John Obi Mikel has filled the role so far this term but Mineiro will now provide an alternative.

Mineiro, who has been capped 24 times by Brazil, will stay with the Blues until the end of the season.,19528,11661_4190201,00.html
