Russian daily newspaper Izvestia understands that Russia national team captain Roman Shirokov is set to continue his career at CSKA Moscow.

Despite being one of their best footballers, the 34-year-old was allowed to leave Spartak Moscow as his contract was rescinded few days ago.

And his national team coach Leonid Slutsky, also acting as CSKA Moscow boss, wasted no time in securing the signature of one of country’s leading players.

Izvestia claims that Shirokov has agreed a one-and-a-half-year deal with the Army Men with an option for a further year, with the agreement set to be finalized in the coming days.

Roman Shirokov had a key role to play as Russia recovered from a difficult position to secure their place at the Euro 2016 finals, starting seven qualifying matches.

Despite interest from abroad, the veteran midfielder has spent his entire career in native Russia and is widely expected to hang up his boots at CSKA Moscow.
