Kingston jumps aboard Lokomotiv

FC Lokomotiv Moskva have secured the services of Ghanaian international midfielder Laryea Kingston on loan from FC Terek Chechenskaya Respublika.

FC Lokomotiv Moskva have continued their winter shopping spree by securing the services of Ghanaian international midfielder Laryea Kingston on loan.

Ghanaian glory
The 25-year-old joins the Moscow club from FC Terek Chechenskaya Respublika, who were relegated at the end of 2005 having finished bottom of the Russian Premier League. Kingston moved to Russia from Israeli outfit Hapoel Tel-Aviv FC in 2004, and made 15 league appearances for FC Krylya Sovetov Samara before spending the second half of the 2005 campaign with Terek. Kingston has won seven caps for his country, helping them qualify for a first FIFA World Cup finals this summer, and is currently in Egypt for the African Cup of Nations.

Increased options
Lokomotiv have moved for Kingston to strengthen their options in the defensive midfielder position, which have been narrowed after the departure of Brazilian Lima to Qatar on loan. He will contest the three available places in the Russian club's UEFA Cup squad with other winter signings - defender Marián Had, striker Draman Traoré and Emir Spahić. Lokomotiv face Spanish side Sevilla FC in the last 32 of the UEFA Cup with the ties taking place on 15 and 23 February.
