Nigerian striker Obafemi Martins has left German outfit VfL Wolfsburg to join reigning Russian champions Rubin Kazan. Martins’ departure comes just one season after he had sealed a switch to Wolfsburg from Newcastle United.
The fee is rumoured to be somewhere near the eight million euro mark, significantly less than the nine million pounds Wolfsburg shelled out for Martins last summer. Martins has signed a three year contract with Rubin, who have won the last two seasons of the Russian Premier League.
Martins only made sixteen appearances for Wolfsburg last season and netted five times for the Wolves. He was also part of Nigeria’s 2010 World Cup squad that bowed out of the competition at the group stage.
