Rangers: Daniel Candeias joins from Benfica to become Pedro Caixinha's fifth signing


Daniel Candeias played 16 games for Nurnberg in 2014-15, netting two goals

Rangers have completed the signing of Portuguese winger Daniel Candeias on a two-year deal from Benfica.

The 29-year-old is manager Pedro Caixinha’s fifth summer capture, following the signings of Bruno Alves, Ryan Jack, Dalcio and Fabio Cardoso.

Candeias, who started his career with Porto, worked with Caixinha during a stint at Nacional in his homeland.

He has spent much of the past three years on loan from Benfica, most recently with Turkish club Alanyaspor.

Candeias, who did not make a first-team appearance for Benfica, was on loan at Nurnberg in Germany, Granada in Spain and French side Metz before his switch to Turkey in 2016-17.

The winger played for Portugal at youth level from the Under-16s to the Under-23s.
