No, he's not the one that likes Wensleydale… so just who is Chelsea's new signing Wallace
14:29 GMT, 5 December 2012
Chelsea are no strangers to Brazilian flair and the latest Samba star to join the ranks is Wallace.
Like Oscar, who arrived in the summer and took England by storm, the Fluminense right-back is not well known outside of his own country.
So, what can Blues fans expect from the fifth Brazilian to join their squad Will he be more David Luiz or Emerson Thome

Flair: Wallace loves to roam forward from his defensive position
Stamford Bridge Samba stars
Here are the Brazilians who have left Chelsea:
Alex (86 Premier League apps)
Normally reliable and packing a thunderous free kick, Alex was well liked by everyone in SW6 – apart from Andre Villas-Boas.
The Portuguese manager alienated and then sold the defender, much to the chagrin of the Stamford Bridge faithful.
Juliano Belletti (54)
A cult hero, Belletti was adored by the fans. It helped that he had a penchant for scoring spectacular goals, with one fantastic strike in particular against Tottenham endearing him to the supporters.
Emerson Thome (21)
Only at the club for one year, but popular because of his willingness to put in a shift. Known as 'The Wall', Thome drew nods of approval with his uncompromising tackles.
A bizarre, obscure Avram Grant signing who barely played for the team. He made one other appearance, in the League Cup against Burnley.
First things first – the 18-year-old who cost 5million will arrive for duty at the end of the season.
Wallace officially becomes a Chelsea player in January but will remain at Fluminense until next term.
Although he has been signed while Rafael Benitez is in charge, the deal was put in place while Roberto Di Matteo had the reins at the Bridge.
He made his debut for the first team this year, turning out 18 times to help them win the Brazilian league, the Rio State league and the Guanabara Cup.
He is likely to fit into the Chelsea squad behind Cesar Azpilicueta, with Branislav Ivanovic spending more time in his favoured centre-back position.
When Wallace does play he will get forward a lot – he's not shy of putting in crosses with either foot.
Fans will be glad to know Wallace is putting some research time in, to see how he'll fit in with his team-mates.
He said: 'I used to follow La Liga and its big clubs but now because I'm moving to Chelsea I'm following them more, after the Champions League triumph.
Solid as a rock: Alex was excellent for Chelsea
'I'm watching every single match apart from when I'm playing or concentrating with my team but I don't miss a chance to see their matches.
He also expects having compatriots Lucas Piazon, Ramires, Oscar and Luiz will help ease him into life in London.
'It's always helpful to have Brazilian colleagues playing by your side because normally they are settled down and can give you some advice and this is important,' he explained.
'Now that I'm moving to London I'll have to learn some English, but I am used to this and they can help me a lot.'
Shaky: David Luiz is not renowned for his defensive aptitude
He played alongside Piazon for Brazil at the 2011 U17 World Cup in Mexico, finishing fourth.
Wallace has represented his country at U20 level and won the South American U17 Championship last year.
He is heading to Chelsea from the club which Deco, and fan favourite Juliano Belletti departed for in 2010.
It doesn't seem likely he will help Chelsea's defence become any more solid, but Chelsea fans are used to right backs who play similarly – Jose Bosingwa, anyone
