The Bosnia international, who spent previous spells in Russia with Lokomotiv Moscow and Torpedo Moscow, moved to the Primera Division side from Montpellier in August 2011.

The two clubs have reached an agreement for the centre-back to join the big-spending side and he is currently heading to Moscow to finalise the proposed move.

A statement on Sevilla's official website on Tuesday read: "Emir Spahic left Sevilla FC's training camp in Cartaya this afternoon to travel to Moscow.

"The player now has to agree his contract with officials at Anzhi, who have until Wednesday to register him for the league."

I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
