Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala have announced the signing of Ghana midfielder Mohammed Rabiu on a three-and-a-half year deal.
Anzhi Makhachkala confirmed his capture on the club’s official website on Tuesday.
It will be recalled that GHANASoccernet.com broke the news of the defensive midfielder’s move to the club back in July at the team’s pre-season camp in Austria.
The 24-year-old moved on a free transfer after playing three seasons with relegated Kuban Krasnodar where he played 57 matches in all competitions.
He scored one goal, made four assists with 19 yellow and three red cards.
But the Ghana international can only play for the Dagestani club after fully recovering from the knee injury which has sidelined him since May.
He suffered the injury after 63 minutes when they hosted Rostov in a Russian Premier League match.
Rabiu underwent surgery on the anterior cruciate ligament rupture and is currently undergoing rehabilitation.
Doctors are expecting him to return to full training in two months.
