Shakhtar beat Chelsea to Taison
Shakhtar Donetsk have signed Taison from Metalist Kharkiv, snatching the player from under the nose of Chelsea.
Chelsea had been looking at the player and hoping to sign him, only for Shakhtar to step in and meet Taison's release clause.
"I am happy to play for such a great club," Taison told his new club's official website. "I played a lot against Shakhtar and I have a lot of information about them. I know Shakhtar's Brazilians. I really want to help the club win new titles.
"I'll train and work, respecting everyone who plays for the club. In the first place I have respect for all. Of course, I will try to play as best I can."
