Dieumerci Mbokani: Set to take on a new challenge in Ukraine

Dieumerci Mbokani: Set to take on a new challenge in Ukraine

The Congo international was initially reluctant to contemplate a transfer to Ukraine, as he looked to keep his options open.

West Bromwich Albion were reported to be readying an approach, while speculation suggested that Liverpool might also be keen.

No Premier League clubs were prepared to pay the going rate, though, and Mbokani will not be holding out any longer.

The 27-year-old is looking forward to linking up with a side who have worked hard to get a deal over the line and have shown great faith in his ability.

He said: "I am delighted, it is another adventure and one I am excited about.

"I am coming here to improve and score as many goals as I can. Kiev are a huge club in this part of the world and a big name in Europe.

"My ambition was to go to England but the teams interested were not ready to meet the demands of my club.

"Kiev have shown that they want me more than anything, so that is why I decided to come here."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
