The 21-year-old striker has agreed a three-year contract and has already linked up with his new team-mates at their Turkish training camp. Among his colleagues will be compatriot Nuno Frechaut, who joined from Boavista FC on Tuesday. Both players represented their country at last year's Olympic Games.
"I came to Sporting to be successful, but I didn't have enough time to settle," said Danny, who started just once in nine appearances this season. "The presence of Frechaut will help me adapt to playing and living in Russia." It will not be the first time Danny has risen to a new challenge as the Venezuelan-born player only moved to Portugal when he was 15.
