 Official: Lokomotiv Moscow Sign Super Eagles World Cup Star On Three-Year Deal
Russian Premier League champions Lokomotiv Moscow have completed the signing of Nigeria international Brian Idowu, who last played for Amkar Perm.

The versatile defender has penned a three-year contract which will see him remain with the Railwaymen until the end of the 2020-2021 season.

Idowu says he's delighted to join Lokomotiv Moscow, adding that he watched the team play in the Champions League.

He told the club's official website : ''I am very glad to switch to Lokomotiv. I'm really looking forward to joining the team at the training camp.

''In childhood I watched the matches of Loco in the Champions League - against Real and Inter. The whole country was proud of the team!

''I am well acquainted with Aleksandr Kolomeytsev, we played together in Perm, I know the rest of the guys from the matches between Amkar Perm and Lokomotiv Moscow.''

Though Idowu was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia, he will be registered as a foreign player by Lokomotiv Moscow after making his competitive debut for Nigeria at the ongoing World Cup.
