FC Rubin Kazan have strengthened for their UEFA Europa League campaign with the signings of Turkey winger Gökhan Töre and former Spain midfielder Pablo Orbaiz.
Cologne-born Töre, 20, has signed a four-year contract after leaving Hamburger SV. Capped ten times, he was limited to 22 Bundesliga matches last season due to injury.
The 33-year-old Orbaiz has agreed a 12-month deal following his release by Athletic Club, where he had been since a 2000 move from CA Osasuna. Capped four times by Spain, between 2002 and 2005, and a 1999 FIFA U-20 World Cup winner, Orbaiz spent last season on loan at Olympiacos FC, helping them retain the Greek title and knock Rubin out of the UEFA Europa League in the round of 32.
Rubin will start their UEFA Europa League campaign in the group stage following their 2012 Russian Cup triumph.
