Manchester City duo Jo and Felipe Caicedo both look set to seal moves to Russia.
24-year-old Jo joined City in 2008 from CSKA - but his switch to England has been a big failure.
He has played just 21 games for City, and has spent three loan spells away from the club - two with Everton and one with Galatasaray.
Now his former club CSKA are ready to take him back on an initial loan until January with a view to a permanent move.
And Jo will not be alone in moving to the Russian capital as Caicedo looks to be heading to Moscow with Lokomotiv in talks with him.
Caicedo, like Jo, also joined City in 2008 - but he has been unable to forge a regular spot.
He has spent the last three seasons away from the club on loan with Sporting Lisbon, Malaga and Levante.
Indeed his spell with Levante was impressive as he bagged 13 goals and now Lokomotiv have moved to secure his signature.
"Caicedo has not yet signed any contract with Lokomotiv," Lokomotiv president Olga Smorodskaya told RIA Novosti.
"We are in very difficult talks with his club, therefore, I wouldn't like to endanger their success by premature forecasting of the outcome.
"Probably, the negotiations will last for a week."
