Former Real Madrid and Brazil coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo has agreed to coaching one of China's second-tier league teams.

He has arrived in Tianjin this afternoon to be officially revealed as new coach for China League's Tianjin Songjiang.

Luxemburgo will take charge of the team next January on an initial one-year deal.

He will have the option to extend his contract for another two years if he completes the task of promoting the team to the Chinese Super League.

The new coach is expected to bring his own backroom staff from Brazil.

Tianjin Songjiang are now 11th in the standings and a promotion is out of reach with four games remaining this season.

Sixty-three-year-old Luxemburgo managed Brazil's national team from 1998 to 2000 and had a 11-month spell at Real Madrid in 2005.

He was with Flamengo and defending champions Cruzeiro in the Brazilian Serie A this season.

He is the most successful coach in Brazil's Serie A history with five league titles.
