Niculae returns to Dinamo

Romanian forward Marius Niculae has confirmed he has signed a four-year deal with Dinamo Bucharest.

The 27-year-old, who was playing for Scottish Premier League side Inverness Caledonian Thistle, started his career in Bucharest before spending seven years abroad.

"Several clubs were interested but I told Scottish bosses that I only wanted to play for Dinamo," said Niculae, who will be officially unveiled on Friday. Details of the transfer were not revealed.

Niculae played for Dinamo from 1996 to 2001 before joining Lisbon giants Sporting, where he stayed until 2005.

He then played for Standard Liege in Belgium and German Bundesliga outfit Mainz, before arriving in Inverness in 2007.
