After weeks of negotiations, Dieumerci Mbokani has moved from RSC Anderlecht to FC Dynamo Kyiv. The transfer fee and the length of his contract remain undisclosed.
The DR Congo striker will meet up with his new team-mates next week when they return from a pre-season training camp in Austria. Mbokani initially joined Anderlecht on loan in 2006/07, returning to the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium in 2011 after spells at R. Standard de Liège, AS Monaco FC and VfL Wolfsburg. He scored 38 goals in 62 league games for the club over the course of the last two seasons.
The 27-year-old is Dynamo's second major signing of the summer following the arrival of Netherlands forward Jeremain Lens from PSV Eindhoven. Dynamo are scheduled to start their UEFA Europa League campaign in the play-offs following a third-placed finish in Ukraine in 2012/13 – and a third successive season without a trophy, their longest barren spell since 1961.
