Manager Gareth Ainsworth was delighted to seal the signature of the Premier League man.

“I think it’s a real coup to attract someone of his calibre to Adams Park,” said Ainsworth.“We’ve started the season really well, particularly at home where we’ve played some fantastic attacking football, and Rolando will complement our style with his pace and ability to run at players and create chances for himself and others.
