Russian Premier League side Lokomotiv Moscow have won the chase for Nigeria striker Victor Obinna.

The 24-year-old had seen his contract with Inter expire and was on the lookout for a new club. A pacy forward, Obinna had shown glimpses of brilliance at the San Siro, though not often enough to convince the Nerazzurri to keep him within their ranks.

Obinna has had loan spells with La Liga side Malaga and in the second half of last year with West Ham United. He was unable to help the Hammers survive in the Premier League however.

The striker has signed a contract for four years in Moscow and Lokomotiv hope that Obinna will offer a different option up front.

Obinna has 38 caps for Nigeria, scoring eight times in the process for his country.
