Nigeria winger Ahmed Musa sealed a 2:0 win for leaders CSKA Moscow over their relegation-threatened hosts Krylya Sovetov as the Russian Premier League resumed after a long winter break.
The Super Eagles star struck in the 72nd minute after Swedish team-mate Pontus Wernbloom had given CSKA a first half lead.
It was the ninth goal of the season for the 20-year-old AFCON star, who has been named in the Super Eagles' squad to tackle Kenya in this month's 2014 World Cup qualifier.
Victor Obinna Nsofor came on in the 79th minute for Lokomotiv Moscow in their 1-0 derby loss away to Dinamo Moscow.
Sulley Muntari's younger brother Sulley Muniru has signed for Romanian champions CFR 1907 Cluj.
The former Liberty Professionals youth team player was unveiled last Thursday.
The 18-year-old had trials at Spanish giants Real Madrid but he was not offered a contract.
Muniru, an offensive midfielder, was signed by Cluj as a like-for-like replacement for Senegalese Modou Sougou who has been snapped up Olympic Marseille.
"I just got to Italy with my teammates. We are playing Inter Milan on Thursday and I am in the 23-man squad," Muniru is quoted by Goal.com Ghana.
Marseille has made its third signing of the transfer window by recruiting forward Modou Sougou from Romanian club CFR Cluj.
Marseille announced the signing on its website Thursday without giving contract details.
The 28-year-old Sougou has played 10 matches for Senegal, scoring once, and scored 10 league goals for Cluj last season.
He can play on either flank and strengthens Marseille's attacking options after it sold forward Loic Remy to Queens Park Rangers last week.
Marseille coach Elie Baup described Sougou as ''an attack-minded player on the flank with a different profile to the players we already have, who likes getting on the ball and especially passing.''
Nigerian striker Yero Bello has returned to seal a year’s deal with Israeli team Bnei Sakhnin.
Yero, who was in South Africa to try out with Orlando Pirates, joined the Israeli side as a free agent after he left Romania club Vaslui.
Speaking with MTNFootball.com, Bello’s close confidant said the striker was happy with the deal.
“Bello was very happy that this deal scaled through. It will not be difficult for him to play in Israel as he has played for four different clubs in Israel before. He said he won’t let the team down for having confidence in him by signing,” the source told MTNFootball.com
