Gbamin Joins CSKA Moscow On Loan

Everton midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin has joined CSKA Moscow on loan for the remainder of the 2021/22 season.

Gbamin, who joined the Blues from FSV Mainz in the summer of 2019, heads to the Russian Premier League outfit ahead of the second half of their campaign.

While the English transfer window has been shut since the end of January, Russian clubs are able to complete moves until 22 February.

CSKA, who are managed by former Russia international defender Aleksei Berezutski, currently sit fourth in the league standings – eight points behind leaders Zenit Saint Petersburg.

The league's 11-week winter break comes to an end this weekend, with CSKA set to take on local rivals Spartak Moscow.
