Donetsk, Ukraine: Shakhtar Donetsk says it has signed Brazilian forward Barcellos Fred Taison to a $20 million, five-year contract following a transfer deal with his former team Metalist Kharkiv.

Shakhtar says its original offer of $15 million was rejected, but the $20 million offer triggered a clause in Taison's contract in which he could leave Metalist.

Taison has seven goals in European competition, and 13 goals in 25 Ukrainian league games.
