Torpedo turn to Tsyhalko

FC Torpedo Moskva have signed talented young goalkeeper Yuri Tsyhalko from FC Dinamo Minsk.

FC Torpedo Moskva have signed talented young goalkeeper Yuri Tsyhalko from FC Dinamo Minsk.

Fellow Belarussians
The 19-year-old has signed a four-year deal with the Russian club but will stay in Belarus for the first half of the coming season on loan with Dinamo before making the move to Moscow. Once at Torpedo, he will join three Belarussians - defenders Alexander Lukhvich and Dmitri Rovneyko, and midfield player Leonid Lagun.

Increased competition
Tsyhalko lit up the Belarussian First Division last season with a succession of fine performances which won him Dinamo's regular first-choice goalkeeping slot and an international debut. However, he will face stern competition for the No1 jersey at Torpedo from Ukrainian goalkeeper Valeri Vorobiev and Russian Dmitri Borodin.
