Dynamo sign Voronin from Reds
Ukraine striker Andriy Voronin has joined Dynamo Moscow on a three-year contract from Liverpool, the Russian club have confirmed. The 30-year-old, who spent last season on loan at Hertha Berlin, met his new coach Andrey Kobelev yesterday and put pen to paper on his deal.
Dynamo sporting director Konstantin Sarsania said: "The transfer of Andriy Voronin can be considered accomplished. The clubs reached an agreement and the player signed a contract for three years.
"We are delighted that such a strong player has joined Dynamo and we hope he can help solve the team's problems."
Voronin moved to Anfield in 2007 from Bayer Leverkusen after 12 years in Germany, but scored only five goals in 27 league appearances for the Reds.
He said: "I had options for continuing a career in Germany, and several in Russia, but eventually opted for Dynamo. I liked the professional approach of the leaders of the Moscow club during the negotiations, and I also liked the conversation with the head coach Andrey Kobelev.
"Our views came together. Dynamo have set high goals. I'm interested. I believe the Russian league is of a very good level."
