Diego Alves joins Flamengo from Valencia

"This Sunday Valencia CF have reached an agreement with CR Flamengo regarding the permanent transfer of goalkeeper Diego Alves to the Brazilian club", read a statement on La Liga club's website.

With the deal, Flamengo adds one of the world's best penalty saving goalkeepers to an already packed roster that includes stalwarts Paolo Guerrero and Diego, and recent signings Éverton Ribeiro and Rhodolfo.

Diego Alves, the Brazilian goalkeeper who has saved more penalties than any other player in the history of La Liga, has ended his decade-long spell in Spain by leaving Valencia to join Brazilian giants Flamengo, the Spanish side said on Sunday.

The 10-time Brazil global started his professional career with Atletico Mineiro in his homeland, before moving to Spanish side Almeria in 2007, where he spent four years.

Last September, Alves entered the record books making a record-breaking seventeenth penalty save in Spain's top flight.

He broke another record in April when he denied Cristiano Ronaldo from the spot to accumulate six penalties saved in a season, conceding only three spot kicks over the course of the campaign. Last night, the Rubro-Negra drew 1-1 with Cruzeiro in Round Fourteen of the Brasileirão, and with 24 points is now in fourth place.
