Lokomotiv lure Loskov back

FC Lokomotiv Moskva have re-signed club talisman Dmitri Loskov, with the 36-year-old former Russia midfielder saying: "This is where all the brightest moments of my career happened."

FC Lokomotiv Moskva have brought back club talisman Dmitri Loskov following the 36-year-old midfielder's release by FC Saturn Moskovskaya Oblast.

Loskov, who has made a record 409 Russian Premier League appearances, has signed an initial six-month deal with Lokomotiv – with the Moscow outfit saying "both sides have agreed to discuss the possibility of an extension once the season is over". The playmaker represented the Railway Boys from 1997 until 2007, winning three Russian Cups and league titles in 2002 and 2004.

"I never hid the fact I wanted to come back to Loko," said former Russian international Loskov. "I've seen it all with this team. This is where all the brightest moments of my career happened. I also wanted to work again under [Lokomotiv coach] Yuri Semin, the man who made a footballer out of me. So when president Nikolai Naumov called me and offered to discuss a return, there was not much to consider."

Lokomotiv start their UEFA Europa League campaign in the play-off round on 19 August, having finished fourth in Russia in 2009.
