RIO DE JANEIRO, May 22 (Xinhua) -- Former Brazil international goalkeeper Cassio Ramos has joined Cruzeiro on a three-year contract, the Brazilian Serie A club said on Wednesday.

The 36-year-old, who ended his 12-year spell at Corinthians earlier this month, will be tied to the Belo Horizonte outfit until June 2027.

"I'm highly motivated and I'm sure I can be a part of a successful period at this club," Cassio said in a video published on social media.

Cassio, who has been capped once for Brazil, made 686 appearances for Corinthians across all competitions, having joined the Sao Paulo club in 2012 from PSV Eindhoven.

Cruzeiro are currently fifth in Brazil's 20-team Serie A standings with 10 points from the first five games of the season.
