Brazilian midfielder Eric de Oliveira reached Doha in the early hours of Sunday to join QNB Stars League side Al Markhiya as replacement for a foreign professional player.
Oliveira was greeted on arrival by team official Abdullah Al Sayegh. He is to undergo his medical at Qatar’s orthopaedic and sports medicine hospital Aspetar on Monday before signing the deal.
Al Markhiya, who pulled off a creditable goalless draw with second-placed Al Sadd in Week 12 to be placed 11th on eight points, will host Qatar SC next on 19th January.
Qatar SC had won by a solitary goal when they faced off in the first phase.
