The 27-year old left Deportes Tolima to join the Saudi Arabian club for an undisclosed fee, the 13-time Saudi Pro League champions said.

Holding midfielder Bolivar has made five appearances for his country and is known for his free kicks and long-range shooting.

Coached by former Paris Saint-Germain boss Antoine Kombouare, Al Hilal begin their AFC Champions League quest in the UAE next month when they face former champions Al Ain.
