Chelsea youngster Tino Anjorin has signed with the Russian club Lokomotiv Moscow on a season-long loan, the club has confirmed on its official website. The forward was being pursued by Lokomotiv Moscow since the last transfer window. Anjorin featured for Chelsea last season against FC Krasnodar and even played in a couple of FA CUP matches.
“Tino Anjorin, the 19-year-old attacking midfielder who made three men’s first-team appearances last season, is embarking on his first loan, with Lokomotiv Moscow his destination,” said an official statement from Chelsea.
According to reports, Tino Anjorin has joined Moscow on loan but the club will have a buy-back option which is set at £17 million. However, Chelsea too has the opportunity to get him back at double the price which is £34 million.
There are slim chances of Anjorin returning to Stamford Bridge with the high level of competition. The forward is a talented player and can definitely prosper in the Russian Premier League.
Chelsea returns to the Premier League action on 11th September against Aston Villa. They drew 1-1 against Liverpool FC in their last match at Anfield.
