Okoronkwo: Heading to Russia
Hertha Berlin striker Solomon Okoronkwo has joined Russian outfit Saturn Ramenskoye.
The Nigerian youngster, who won silver with his national team at the Beijing Olympics, has completed the move for a seven-figure sum, the club confirmed on Sunday.
Okoronkwo will team up with former Berlin coach Jurgen Rober who took over the reins at Saturn last week.
The 21-year-old, who has been handed a three-year contract, made a total of 39 Bundesliga appearances for Hertha and scored four goals.
