Bundesliga outfit Hamburger SV have secured the signing of Olympic-winning Brazilian defender Douglas Santos from Atletico Mineiro on a five-year deal.

The 22-year-old's move was confirmed on the Brazilian club's official website, as well as Hamburg's various social media platforms on the final day of the transfer window.

"The player has already passed a medical and signed a contract with the German club," Mineiro's website revealed.
