Nikola Vlasic leaves Everton for CSKA Moscow
Last Updated: 20/06/19 2:59pm
Croatian midfielder Nikola Vlasic has completed a move to CSKA Moscow for an undisclosed fee.
The Croatia international spent last season on loan in Moscow where he scored eight times in 34 games in all competitions, including three goals in the Champions League.
The 21-year-old joined Everton on Deadline Day in the summer of 2017 for a fee of around £8m from Hadjuk Split but only managed 19 appearances at his spell with the club.
He initially impressed Everton boss at the time Ronald Koeman, but struggled for game time under Sam Allardyce who replaced the outgoing Dutchman in November 2017.
Vlasic said: "I am really happy and proud to sign for this great club. It is the only thing I wanted to do and now I hope that we will achieve great things in the future together."
He is currently on international duty with Croatia U21s at the European Championships and scored his side's only goal in a 4-1 defeat to Romania U21s on Tuesday.
Vlasic has five caps for his country's senior team and started in England's 2-1 win over Croatia in the Nations League in November.
