RIO DE JANEIRO, April 22 (Xinhua) -- Botafogo are close to signing former Brazil international midfielder Daniel Carvalho, the Rio de Janeiro club said on Wednesday.
The 32-year-old has begun training with the club and is expected to sign a season-long contract within days, Botafogo coach Rene Simoes said.
"I hope he will be available for our next Copa do Brasil match [against Capivariano on April 29] Deon Cain Jersey ," Simoes was quoted telling Lancenet.
"He trained today with the team and physically he is ready. It's going to take a while before he is ready to play 90 minutes but we are going to ease him into it."

With Real Madrid facing an injury crisis ahead of Wednesday's Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid attention will be on talisman Cristiano Ronaldo to lead them through but James Rodriguez may hold the key.
Real coach Carlo Ancelotti will be without playmaker Luka Modric and forward Gareth Bale while striker Karim Benzema's knee injury also ruled him out of the quarterfinal -second leg.
As well as the injury -absences, attacking fullback Marcelo is suspended for the decider at the Bernabeu with the tie standing at 0-0 from the first leg.
Ancelotti must improvise by either playing two, rather than the usual trident Denzel Ward Jersey , in attack as he has often done in the absence of Bale or by pushing Rodriguez forward on to the right wing to take the place of the Welshman.
Rodriguez has been in impressive form since his return from injury at the beginning of April with Real winning all four league games.
The Colombian stood out in a sluggish performance by Real in Saturday's 3-1 La Liga win over Malaga when he scored a fine 25-meter goal, won a -penalty and provided defensive cover in midfield.
Now, in the absence of -Modric, who is likely to be the player that Real will miss most against Atletico, it is Rodriguez who can provide similar passing and buildup play.
Ronaldo's strike against Malaga won him his 50th goal of the season but he struggled -after Christmas without the support from midfield of -Modric or Rodriguez.
"The best player was James because he gave a lot of -quality to the team Darius Leonard Jersey ," Ancelotti told a news conference after the -Malaga victory.
Atletico will try to take advantage of the absentees to get some revenge for their defeat in last seas.
