Dyadyun: "I'm Leaving"

Vladimir Dyadyun has today announced that he will be leaving Rubin Kazan on a free transfer when his contract expires, in just 6 months time. The news has shocked the club, and Kanchelskis has shown his sadness at the situation, calling Vladimir, a key player who was one of the reasons for the success last year.

The 25 year old striker joined the Russian team in 2005, but after multiple loan spells, it was Andrei Kanchelskis who gave Vladimir a chance. After playing for Kazan just 5 times, scoring 1 goal, Andrei, who came into the club not knowing much about the players, only saw Dyadyun as a sub. However, when called up for a few friendlies, who played his heart out, and with some excellent performances, scored 15 goals in 44 games for the Russian team - becoming one of the key players of the season.

Now that Rubin are losing one of their main two strikers, many are unsure at how Kanchelskis will solve the problem. With the squad already lacking squad depth, a perfect striking partnership for Rondon could be hard to find. Some feel Carlos Fierro may be called upon, but others think he will buy a world class. Adrian, Fernando Torres and Javier Hernandez are just some of the names floating about as a possible replacement.

Kanchelskis thanked Dyadyun for his work at the club, and wished him all the best at new club Sevilla.
Unlucky to see him leave on a free, I reckon Fierro could take his place.
LJO200: Really gutted. Has kind of put me off staying at Rubin for ages. :/
Fernando Torres at Rubin? Never!

Nice update m8 :) You just said something weird :
with some excellent performances, scored 15 goals in 24 goals in 44 games for the Russian team
Sonalexwild: Haha, I've been linked with Torres on the game somehow o.O

And thanks, for pointing that out. I went to put 15 goals in 24 games, then realised it was 44 games and mucked it up. ;)
Good luck finding a striker! I recommend Destro or Fierro!
PaukerJ: It's been seriously tough! A few people have suggested Destro, so he's a big possibility. But do I risk it and try and bring out Fierro? :P

Forlan Joins Rubin Kazan

Andrei Kanchelskis has announced his first signing of the transfer window as 34 year old striker Diego Forlan, from Brazilian side Internacional. The exact fee is unknown, but unconfirmed sources say that Rubin payed just £210 thousand for the player.

Forlan has played for many big sides such as Manchester United, Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan, but last played for Internacional, signing after his contract at Inter Milan was terminated. Forlan featured 45 times for the Brazilian team, grabbing 15 goals.

The Uruguayan striker has said of his delightment at joining a side such as Rubin Kazan, and is thrilled to be able to work with someone such as Andrei. Forlan will be about £30,000 p/week, and is expected to play as a rotated striker.

Will Andrei look for another striker to fill the role of Dyadyun, or rotate Forlan and Fierro. Who knows?
Didn't see that one coming. Forgot he was still playing. Good signing.
Gashead: Hes like my favourite player ever in real life. Every team I with I scout him, and that came perfectly. Usually I never need a striker, but couldn't resist for such a cheap price. Wanted the wages to be slightly lower, but the low transfer fee made up for it! And thanks :P
He is a great player, but I hate him for the reason I gave you already :P!
PaukerJ: I see why. I would have probably cried if he did it to me, but that's probably because of how much I like him.. ;)

Andrei Signs Unknown Duo

Andrei Kanchelskis has announced another two signings. Both players are young, Russian, and with no real experience, so it's a risk, but also a suggestion Kanchelskis may be making this a long term stay at the club.

His first signing is Dmitry Rasulov. Rasulov is a 16 year old striker who signed for just £10,000. Dmitry played 10 games last year in the first division, with Mettalurg-Kuzbass, showing some potential. This could be a signing that could really work out for Kazan. Rasulov is currently on £10 a week.

The second signing is Vladislav Lebedev, a 15 year old central midfielder. Lebedev was grabbed from Spartak Nalchik for £750,000, considerably more than Rasulov. Lebedev is also currently on just £10 a week, and has less experience, playing just 2 games in the first division the season before. However, scouts have suggested a lot more potential in Vladislav.

Kanchelskis has said these signings were both part of the long term plan, decided with board members and the manager himself. Both players will stay in the Under 18 squad for the time being.
Just caught up with this, brilliant story Devil :)
Blue: Thanks Ben, means a lot. The start of this season has been a bit shaky, but I think I've been able to get everything back to how I like it. :P
