Bilyaletdinov To End Everton Nightmare With Spartak Move
Everton flop Diniyar Bilyaletdinov is set to end his nightmare spell on Merseyside with a move back to his native Russia, as Spartak Moscow confirm they have agreed a deal with the Blues.
The Russian international has had a torrid time at Goodison Park, with a series of sub-standard performances in the royal blue since joining in 2009 for a cost of approximately £9m.
The transfer fee is yet to be confirmed, but unofficial outlets are reporting that it could be as low as £2m, representing a huge loss of money on the 26-year-old former Lokomotiv man.
Billed as an attacking midfielder with a cultured left foot, Bilyaletdinov often looked lost in England, severely lacking the pace needed to compete in the Premier League, despite a few headline grabbing long-range goals.
