Spartak Moscow have announced the signing of Lyon midfielder Kim Kallstrom, subject to a medical.
While Kallstrom elected to stay put at that time, with Lyon still in the UEFA Champions League, he has now opted to move to the financially lucrative Russian Premier League.
A statement on Spartak's official website read: "Agreement has been reached between Spartak and Lyon for Kim Kallstrom to sign a transfer deal.
"In the near future, the 29-year-old central midfielder must undergo a medical examination.
"In the case of passing a medical examination, he will sign a contract with Spartak."
Kallstrom, who has been capped 95 times by his country, spent six years at Lyon since joining from fellow French club Rennes in 2006.
