Anji swoop for Dinamo Moskva striker Kokorin

Aleksandr Kokorin is to join FC Anji Makhachkala after Guus Hiddink's team triggered the Russia striker's €19m release clause to capture him from FC Dinamo Moskva.

FC Anji Makhachkala's summer recruitment campaign continues after they triggered the €19m release clause in Aleksandr Kokorin's contract to bring in the Russia striker from FC Dinamo Moskva.

Kokorin, 22, has agreed an undisclosed deal with the Dagestan outfit, where he will link up with international team-mate and fellow recent arrival, Igor Denisov. Winger Aleksei Ionov and goalkeeper Mikhail Kerzhakov have also joined Guus Hiddink's team this summer.

Kokorin scored ten goals in 22 league outings last season and had been set to play at June's UEFA European Under-21 Championship before being ruled out with an Achilles injury. He signed a new deal with Dinamo earlier this year, tying him to the club until summer 2016, but will now help Anji when they enter the UEFA Europa League at the group stage.
