Sigurdsson completes Kazan loan switch

Fulham defender Ragnar Sigurdsson has joined Rubin Kazan on a season-long loan deal.

The 31-year-old scored once in 18 appearances last season for Fulham after arriving from FC Krasnodar.

He has less than 12 months remaining on his current contract and will play out the rest of that deal at the Russian Premier League side.

Sigurdsson has been capped 69 times by Iceland and scored the opening goal in his country’s shock 2-1 victory over England at Euro 2016.

He has previously spent time at Fylkir, IFK Goteborg and Copenhagen.

Rubin Kazan and Galatasaray after AJ

The Daily Mail clearly haven’t paid too much attention to Martin Jol’s press conference this afternoon.

Despite the Fulham manager insisting he was keen to keep hold of Andy Johnson Рand potentially convince him to stay at Craven Cottage beyond the end of his current contract in the summer Рthe Mail claims that Russian side Rubin Kazan and Turkish giants Galatasaray are keen to sign the 30-year old. For the record, Jol told the media this afternoon that he considered Johnson a key part of his squad, especially after his fine performance against Newcastle on Saturday, and speculated that he may even start against former club Everton in the FA Cup tomorrow night.
