Andriy Voronin seals move to Dinamo Moscow

Voronin has failed to become a Liverpool regular

Ukraine striker Andriy Voronin has joined Dinamo Moscow on a three-year deal to end his disappointing spell with Liverpool.

The 30-year-old had returned to Anfield this season after spending the last campaign on loan at Hertha Berlin.

But he failed to establish himself in Rafa Benitez's side, despite Fernando Torres' injury problems.

Voronin scored just five league goals for Liverpool and made 40 appearances for the club in all.

"The transfer of Andriy Voronin can be considered accomplished," said Dinamo sporting director Konstantin Sarsania.

"We are delighted that such a strong player has joined Dinamo."

Voronin met his new coach Andrey Kobelevb on Saturday and put pen to paper on his deal.


Voronin said: "I had options for continuing a career in Germany, and several in Russia, but eventually opted for Dinamo.

"I liked the professional approach of the leaders of the Moscow club during the negotiations, and I also liked the conversation with the head coach Andrey Kobelev.

"Our views came together. Dinamo have set high goals. I'm interested. I believe the Russian league is of a very good level."
