Rumour Roundup: June 12th, 2013

Thus far it has been quite a slow week for transfer rumours, so today there's a shorter Rumour Roundup than usual. On non-transfer related news, Samuel Eto'o was named the Russian Premier League's best player for the 2012-13 season, which is absolutely ridiculous.

Done Deals:
Rubin's Gokhan Tore has joined Turkish side Besiktas on a season long loan deal with an option to buy. The young winger had shown some bright spots since signing from Hamburg last summer, but has been mostly out of favour and only managed to make 5 league appearances over the course of the season.

Tino Costa has completed his €7 million switch from Valencia to Spartak Moscow. The Argentinian midfielder was forced to depart Spain due to heavy financial problems that plagued his club, which could also see players such as Sergio Canales and Roberto Soldado follow Costa out the exit door in the summer.

Looking Likely:
CSKA Moscow have reportedly offered former Arsenal midfielder Denilson a contract ahead of interest from Turkish and German clubs. The Brazilian midfielder has not made an appearance for Arsenal since 2011 and spent the last 3 years on loan at Santos before his contract at his parent club expired at the end of the 2012-13 season.

Spanish midfielder Esteban Granero could be swapping Queen's Park Rangers for Rubin Kazan in the wake of his club's relegation from the English Premier League. This past week, Granero's agent confirmed that he would be leaving QPR and that Russian clubs were interested. Rubin seems to be leading the chase, however Anzhi appear to be following the situation closely as well.

3 Rubin stars could be set to leave the Kazan club on free transfers in December after Vladimir Dyadyun revealed that he was "surprised" that no one at the club has contacted him, Bibras Natkho or Aleksandr Ryazantsev regarding their expiring contracts.

Irish winger Aiden McGeady has admitted that he may leave Spartak Moscow this summer amidst interest from Everton. He recently stated that the club may decide to cash in on him considering that his contract expires in little over a year, but that he is not bothered to stay in Moscow next season.

Low Chance:
Spartak are planning a move for Real Madrid Castilla winger Denis Cheryshev, but could be beaten to the starlet by Manchester United. Cheryshev has impressed for Russia's youth national teams and made his debut for the senior national team in November, although he has never actually played for a Russian club.
