Voronin signs for Dynamo Moscow


MOSCOW, January 11 – Russian top flight side Dynamo Moscow have signed Ukrainian striker Andriy Voronin on a three-year contract from Liverpool, the Russian club announced Sunday.

The 30-year-old forward, who spent last season on loan at Hertha Berlin, has signed his personal contract with the Russian side after meeting his new coach Andrey Kobelev.

Dynamo sporting director Konstantin Sarsania told the club’s official website: "The transfer of Andriy Voronin can be considered accomplished.

"The clubs have reached an agreement and the player signed a contract for three years."

No financial details of the deal were disclosed.

Voronin moved to Anfield in 2007 from Bayer Leverkusen after 12 years in Germany but scored only five goals in 27 league appearances for Liverpool.

"I had options for continuing a career in Germany, and several in Russia, but eventually opted for Dynamo," Voronin said.

"I liked the professional approach of the leaders of the Moscow club during negotiations and I also liked the conversation with head coach Andrey Kobelev."
