Dzyuba has a new club, but he was not the only one who left for Europe. RPL Transfers You Could Oversleep
Dynamo has new legionnaires.
Russian clubs are updating squads, although they are doing it with less activity than last month. The list of stellar free agents has dwindled as Artyom Dzyuba left for Turkey, and Yuri Gazinsky went to Ural. In this material – all the significant transactions of recent days.
If you missed the previous week’s transfers, they are here.
Artyom Dziuba: Zenit → Adana Demirspor (free agent)
The saga with Dzyuba’s transfer to the European club is over. Artem flew to Turkey and posted a video – the Besiktas stadium got into the frame. The bosses of this team immediately stated that they had never been interested in a Russian football player. Later, Dzyuba signed a contract with the Adana Demirspor club, which finished ninth in the previous Turkish championship. The ex-defender of Zenit Yaroslav Rakitsky plays there, and Vincenzo Montella coaches the team. In addition, Adana has eccentric striker Mario Balotelli at the club, but he is likely to leave the club. Turkish football expert Elvin Karimov noted that Adana demonstrates a spectacular game with an emphasis on attack. According to Kerimov, the local championship is perfect for Dzyuba.
Magomed-Shapi Suleymanov: Krasnodar → Hapoel Beersheba (loan, € 150,000)
Shapi leaves Krasnodar for the second season in a row for a European club. A year ago, he was rented by the Turkish Giresunspor, now the vice-champion of Israel. The start of this season was not easy for Shapi (four matches, 126 minutes in the RPL), and he went to play practice in another league. By the way, over the past few months, Hapoel won two trophies at once (Israeli Cup and Super Cup), and now the team is one round away from the group stage of the Conference League. According to Transfermarkt, the Beer Sheva club has the right to buy the player for €1.3m.
The Russian will leave to play in European competitions abroad. Where did the graduate of Krasnodar go?
Eden Kartsev: Maccabi Nettanya → Dynamo (loan, €1.3m)
The Moscow club rented a 22-year-old midfielder with an option to buy for € 1.5 million. Kartsev was born in Israel, but in a Belarusian family, so he speaks Russian. Deputy General Director of Dynamo Zeljko Buvac called the newcomer a real athlete with excellent technique. Kartsev himself, after signing the contract, noted that he 100% wants to play in Russia. This season, Eden ran back twice in the Conference League qualification, but his former team left the tournament. The midfielder made his debut for the Israeli national team two years ago, he has three matches in the national team jersey.
Milan Majstorović: Vojvodina → Dynamo (transferred in winter 2023)
The 17-year-old Serb will spend the first half of the season at home, and will join Dynamo in the new year. FIFA prohibits the transfer of underage players between leagues. In February, Maistorovich will celebrate his 18th birthday, after which he will become a full-fledged Dynamo footballer. Buvac praised Milan very highly – he called him one of the best young defenders in Europe. According to Zeljko, top clubs in Europe showed interest in the Serb, but he opted for Dynamo.
Yuri Gazinsky: Krasnodar → Ural (free agent)
Gazinsky’s departure from Krasnodar was known back in May, it took three months to find a new club. An experienced footballer signed a two-year contract with Ural, which was headed by Viktor Goncharenko at the beginning of the week. According to Gazinsky, he received the first call from the president of Ural, Grigory Ivanov, at the end of the last game for Krasnodar. In the summer, Yuri had an option with CSKA, and he even passed a medical examination, but the deal never took place. Ural have had a terrible start this season, and the invitation of such an experienced player as Gazinsky should be good for the team.
Kemal Ademi: Khimki → Sandhausen (loan)
The striker joined the Khimki squad in August 2021. He spent the second half of last season in Germany, where he played on loan for Paderborn. Now Ademi ended up in Sandhausen, which includes Russian defender Alexander Zhirov. The striker did not fit into Khimki’s game model and lost practice. This season, he was not included in the application three times, was left on the bench once and gave nine minutes in the match against Rostov. Roman Teryushkov, a member of the Khimki Supervisory Board, noted that the club was considering several options, from renting to terminating the contract.
Elmir Nabiullin: Khimki → Pari NN (free agent)
The flank defender has not played in the RPL since May 1. In a meeting with Ufa (1:1), the 27-year-old football player broke goalkeeper Alexander Belenov, for which he received a ban for four matches. In the summer, Nabiullin became a free agent, and now he has signed a two-year contract with the Nizhny Novgorod club. Elmir admitted that he moved to a new club without hesitation, as the management showed interest. Last season, he played 20 matches for Khimki in the RPL, scored one goal and gave three assists.
