Shakhtar have said that Fernando, 21, has penned a five-year contract with the Ukrainian Premier League champions.

Mircea Lucescu's side had been in the market for a midfielder after the departure of Fernandinho to Manchester City.

City secured the signing of box-to-box player Fernandinho in a deal reportedly worth £34 million last week.
