Grenoble midfielder Daisuke Matsui’s loan deal to Russian club FK Tom Tomsk has been completed.

The 29-year old Japan international has left the French Ligue 2 outfit to link up with the Russian Premier League club until the end of the year.

Matsui joined Grenoble from Saint-Etienne last year after spending the first eight years of his career with J-League club Kyoto Sanga and French outfit Le Mans.

He becomes just the third Japanese player to join a Russian club after former Amkar Perm striker Seiichiro Maki and Keisuke Honda who signed with CSKA Moscow this year.
