Brazilian boost for Lokomotiv

FC Lokomotiv Moscow have signed Brazilian midfield player Julio Cesar in time to face Grazer AK.

FC Lokomotiv Moscow have made a last-minute signing before the kick-off of their UEFA Champions League campaign, snapping up Brazilian midfield player Julio Cesar in a six-month loan deal.

Already registered
The 22-year-old has been registered for the Russian Premier-Liga and UEFA Champions League and will most likely feature in coach Yuri Semin's plans for Wednesday's third qualifying round tie against Grazer AK.

Injury problems
The arrival of Julio Cesar, who joins from Fluminese, will give Semin a much-needed extra option after injuries to midfield starlet Marat Izmailov and first-choice forward James Obiorah.
