Rubin Kazan swoop for Hercules striker Nelson Valdez
Rubin Kazan have swooped for Hercules striker Nelson Valdez.
Valdez, who is believed to have cost Rubin 5million euros (£4.3m) has signed a four-year contract with the Russian outfit.
Hercules were relegated to the Segunda division at the end of last season and their poor financial state meant they had to cash in on the striker.
Valdez joined from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2010 and he scored eight goals in 25 appearances for the Alicante club.
