Nigeria forward Sylvester Igboun has signed a two-year contract with Russian side Dynamo Moscow after spending the 2019/2020 season at the club on loan.

Igboun first joined Dynamo Moscow on loan from another Russian side Ufa just before the 2019/2020 season.

After his loan deal, the 29-year-old has now joined the club permanently on a two-year-deal and ended his five-year stint with Ufa.

I want to say thank you to Dynamo for their faith in me and the opportunity to continue my career in the blue and white squad,” the Nigeria international told the club’s official website.

The first year turned out to be difficult, we were either at the bottom of the table or close to the very top of it. We did what we could in such a situation and took the place that brings Dynamo back to the European competition. That’s cool!.

”I constantly feel positive and warm from the people here – this concerns coaches, players, club staff. I can say the kindest words to the management, which does everything for us so that Dynamo can perform successfully. And, of course, thanks to our fans who manage to provide us with support everywhere, even when it is prohibited.

”A year is behind here, there are two more ahead, and I believe that these will be two successful years – both for me and for the club. I will also work hard in training, as I have always done, and I am sure that it will pay off. And we, all Dynamo, will be able to achieve the desired results and fulfil our goals in the near future.

Igboun scored four goals in 26 appearances for Dynamo Moscow who finished sixth in the 2019/2020 Russian Premier League season.

Since leaving Nigeria in 2006, the forward played in Denmark for Midtjylland before he moved to Russia to join Ufa in 2015.
