Liverpool Football Club today confirmed the sale of Ukraine striker Andriy Voronin to Dinamo Moscow for a fee of 2 million Euros.
The 30-year-old has signed a permanent deal with the Russian outfit after scoring six times in 40 appearances in a red shirt.
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."
The striker joined Rafael Benitez's men on a Bosman transfer from Bayer Leverkusen in July 2007 and enjoyed a promising start to life on Merseyside, hitting the target four times in the first three months of the season.
But despite an impressive display in the 8-0 Champions League rout of Besiktas, he struggled to make an impact in the months that followed and could not break the Fernando Torres-Steven Gerrard partnership.
A prolific spell during a season-long loan with Hertha Berlin saw him earn a Melwood reprieve, but after failing to hit the target in just 12 appearances this season he has now brought an end to his Liverpool career.
Liverpoolfc.tv would like to wish Andriy all the best for the future.
