SAO PAULO (AP) -- A fourth-division football club in Brazil says it has signed former Paraguay striker Salvador Cabanas, the player shot in the head at a bar in 2009.

Tanabi, a club in Sao Paulo state, released photos of the 33-year-old Cabanas signing his contract and wearing the team's jersey. He is expected to be officially introduced on April 1 and his debut is set for April 6.

Cabanas was shot in the head while he played for Mexican club America in 2009. After a surprisingly successful recovery, he played for Paraguayan third-division club 12 de Octobre a few years ago.

Contract details were not immediately released, but local media said Cabanas' initial deal with Tanabi is valid for three months.

Financial details also weren't released.
