Brian Idowu has completed a move to Lokomotiv Moscow as a free agent, after leaving Amkar Perm at the back of their financial problems.

Concise News learnt that during the winter break, the Zvezda Stadion outfit ran out of cash and they had their 2018-19 Russian Premier League license revoked by the Russian Football Union, thus, leaving the 26-year-old wing-back clubless.
