MADRID, June 22 - Real Sociedad have reached an agreement with Colo Colo to sign their Chile international goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, the Primera Liga club said on their Web site.

The 23-year-old has agreed a five-year contract and will move for a fee reported by Spanish newspapers to be 1.2 million euros ($1.52 million) once the documentation is in order and he passes a medical.

Sociedad have already signed Portuguese midfielder Fabio Felicio from Uniao Leiria and defender Juanito from Alaves as they rebuild for next season.

Colombian international John Viafara has returned to English Premier League club Portsmouth after completing his loan spell at the Basque club.

Sociedad spent most of last season fighting off relegation to finish 16th in the league.
