Younes Belhanda: Says yes to Kiev

Younes Belhanda: Says yes to Kiev

The Morocco playmaker's move from Montpellier was announced on Sunday by the Ukrainian club, whose website then featured a picture of him with his new Dynamo number 90 shirt.

L'Equipe reported this morning that the 23-year-old had had a change of heart, and also suggested he may have signed only a pre-contract agreement rather than full terms.

But Belhanda told his new club's website: "I am very glad to become a player of Dynamo Kiev.

"The day before yesterday I signed a five-year contract with the club.

"Dynamo are the top club in Europe, who I very much want to play for and with whom I dream to win the Ukrainian championship. I hope to play a key role in the team, especially in the Europa League.

"I will not comment on rumours which appeared in the French press. I can only say that I'm a Dynamo player and will represent the colours of the club in the coming years."

Belhanda was Montpellier's joint top scorer in Ligue 1 last season, with 10 goals in their failed defence of their title. His form saw him linked with English sides Arsenal and Aston Villa before he ultimately moved to Kiev.

Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
