Chidera Ejuke completes €12m move to CSKA Moscow

CSKA Moscow have continued their spending spree with a €12m deal for Heerenveen winger Chidera Ejuke.

The Russian club announced the capture of Ejuke, 22, on a four-year contract. He will wear the number 11 shirt.

Ejuke was signed last year from Norwegian side Valerenga for €2m, meaning Heerenveen have made a major profit.

The Nigerian made 25 appearances in the Eredivisie last season, scoring nine goals and contributing four assists.

His sale makes him the third-most expensive player to leave Heerenveen behind Afonso Alves (€17m to Middlesbrough in 2008) and Miralem Sulejmani (€16.25m to Ajax in 2008).

CSKA are investing heavily in the market with Ejuke following €8m signing Bruno Fuchs and Argentina forward Adolfo Gaich, who cost €8.5m.

The Muscovites are also close to signing Joao Palhinha from Sporting CP for €12m.
