Dynamo Kiev have announced the signing of Andriy Shevchenko on a free transfer from Chelsea.
The Ukrainian striker has endured a difficult few seasons at Stamford Bridge following his arrival from AC Milan in 2006.
He returned to Milan on loan last year but the move failed to revitalise his career and he has remained on the fringes since coming back to Chelsea.
Blues manager Carlo Ancelotti confirmed on Friday that Shevchenko had decided to leave the Premier League club as he could not be guaranteed regular football.
Dynamo quickly made contact with Shevchenko and have now revealed on their official website that he has penned a two-year contract.
The 33-year-old, who made his name with Dynamo as a youngster, is expected to be officially presented as a new signing over the next couple of days.
