RIO DE JANEIRO, Jan. 31 (Xinhua) -- Former Brazil international midfielder Paulo Henrique Ganso has joined Fluminense on a five-year deal, the Brazilian Serie A club said on Thursday.

The 29-year-old arrives on a free transfer after rescinding his contract with Spain's Sevilla.

"The midfielder Paulo Henrique Ganso is now a Fluminense player," the Rio de Janeiro side said in a brief statement.

Ganso, once regarded as one of Brazil's most promising talents, made just 18 league appearances for Sevilla after joining the club from Sao Paulo in 2016.

He spent the first half of the 2018-19 season on loan at French Ligue 1 outfit Amiens.
