London - Manchester City's Brazilian striker Jo has joined Internacional, the Premier League club said on Wednesday.

The centre forward, who moved to City for 18 million pounds from CSKA Moscow in 2008, returns to Brazil having failed to make an impact at Eastlands.

"Jo has left Manchester City for Brazilian club Internacional," City said in a statement on their website (

Jo scored six goals in 41 appearances during his three years at the club that included loan spells at Premier League Everton and Turkish side Galatasaray.

Jo's move to Internacional comes a day after another Brazilian side Corinthians pulled out of a deal to sign City striker Carlos Tevez.

The Argentina forward had been expected to complete a move after City manager Roberto Mancini said on Monday that a deal had been struck between the two clubs.

Corinthians said they had run out of time to sign Tevez before the transfer window closes at 2100 GMT on Wednesday.

      Spot on, should audition for a role in one of their films, cos he is certainly not a quality footballer.

    This guys was good before he moved to City and I dont blame him for going to City cos he was one of there first big money transfers. I like City cos they have ambition to be a european giant but the way they splash cash on players just so that they end up warming the bench is ridiculous. City needs better management and stop spending inflated prices on players
