Accrington Stanley have completed the signing of ex-Porto defender Mauro Alexandre de Silva Almeida. The Portugese center back joins on a deal which expires at the end of the season.

The defender was spotted whilst Stanley were on a training break in Spain last week.

Mauro turned 25 yesterday so what a present he has got! A contract with the World famous Accrington Stanley!

He is expected to be named in a strong Stanley Reserve team tomorrow evening. Stanley Reserves take on Oldham Athletic with a 7pm kick off at the Fraser Eagle Stadium. Prices are £3 for adults, £2 for concessions, while season ticket holders can be admitted for free.

He will be available to play on Saturday against Chester City in Coca-Cola League Two, as long as international clearance in granted in time.
