Yevhen Seleznyov

Clubs: FC Shakhtar Donetsk (twice), FC Arsenal Kyiv (loan) FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk (twice)

• Born in Makiivka, in eastern Ukraine, he started out in Shakhtar's youth academy but his route to top-flight senior football came via an 18-month spell at FC Arsenal Kyiv.

• Returned to Shakhtar for the 2008/08 season and featured regularly in domestic competition, scoring seven goals in 26 outings, but made only substitute appearances in a long European campaign that resulted in UEFA Cup victory.

• Unsettled at Shakhtar, he joined Dnipro and scored 13 league goals in 2009/10 followed by a league-best tally of 17 in 2010/11, helping the club to fourth place in each season before returning to Shakhtar in 2011.

• Received his first senior cap for Ukraine in May 2008 and scored his first goal six months later before adding his first two competitive strikes in 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying ties against Andorra; generally used off the bench during the countdown to UEFA EURO 2012.

• Returned to Shakhtar for 2011/12 and helped them to a domestic double with 14 league goals which secured his place in Oleh Blokhin's squad for the EURO finals but he did not feature in the tournament. 

• Made the switch back to Dnipro in August 2012, helping the side to a fourth-placed finish and a UEFA Europa League spot.
