Moscow close to signing Obinna

okomotiv Moscow are hopeful to complete the signing of Victor Obinna from West Ham after finalising a four-year deal with the striker.

The Nigeria international spent last season on loan at West Ham, but he was unable to save the club from relegation from the Premier League.

The 24-year-old forward scored eight goals in 30 appearances for the Hammers during his season-long loan in England.

Serie A giants Inter opted against extending Obinna's contract this summer meaning he was a free agent.

Lokomotiv have now confirmed they have agreed terms with the player, who will formally move clubs on July 1.

"We have agreed a contract with Victor as a free agent," the Russian outfit confirmed. "The agreement with Obinna is for four years."
