RIO DE JANEIRO, Jan. 11 (Xinhua) -- Uruguay's international striker Sebastian Abreu has ended his three-year deal at Brazilian club Botafogo to join Montevideo outfit Nacional.

The 36-year-old agreed to a two-year deal with Uruguay's reigning top-flight champions on Friday, according to a statement on the player's official website.

It will be his third stint at the club, having scored 24 goals in 38 appearances from 2004 to 2005 and 18 in 16 matches while on loan from Spain's Deportivo La Coruna in 2001.

"Sebastian 'Loco' Abreu has just confirmed his exit from Botafogo and return to the club where his heart belongs," the statement said.

Abreu has won 70 caps for Uruguay and scored 26 goals since his international debut in 1996.
