Five-year stay
The 22-year-old has agreed a five-year contract in the Russian capital, with 28-year-old Portuguese midfielder Luís Loureiro moving to Sporting as part of a reported €6m transfer. Enakarhire arrived in Europe in 2001 when he switched to R. Standard de Liège. He spent three seasons in Belgium before heading to Sporting a year ago.

New faces
In a successful campaign, Enakarhire helped Sporting reach the UEFA Cup final, while the club's third-place finish in the SuperLiga ensured their entry to the 2005/06 UEFA Champions League third qualifying round. At Dinamo, Enakarhire joins a new-look squad also featuring Denis Kolodine, Patrick Ovie, Giourkas Seitaridis, Maniche and Costinha.
