The Qatar Football Association said on its website Sunday that Adriano the Brazilian striker has signed a three-year deal with the Qatari club.

The 29-year-old, who joined Gamba from city rivals Cerezo during the offseason, scored nine goals in eight games in the 2011 J-League campaign.

Adriano is the latest Brazilian to move from Japan to the Middle East. Last week, Japan’s Urawa Reds announced it had agreed to transfer Brazilian striker Edmilson to Qatari club Al Gharafa.
