11 months after his big money move to Russia, 23 year old Nigerian forward Henty Ezekiel has left Russian side Lokomotive Moscow for Baniyas of the UAE.

Ezekiel joined the Russian side in February 2016 for a princely sum of €5m from Olimpija, in what was a record sale for any club in Slovenia, but he failed to settle down in Russia.

He made just 17 league appearance in over a year with just a goal to his name, a record not helped by his failure to command a regular shirt in the team despite the hype that surrounded his arrival.

Baniyas announced his capture on their social media handle, but were not specific if it was a full deal or a loan deal.
