Dzsudzsak leaves PSV to join Anzhi
PSV Eindhoven winger Balazs Dzsudzsak has joined Russian outfit Anzhi Makhachkala on a four year-deal, the Eredivisie club have announced.
Dzsudzsak, 24, had been linked with a host of teams across the continent but has opted for Anzhi, who sit second in the Premier Liga and are captained by former Real Madrid and Brazil full-back Roberto Carlos, in a deal reportedly worth £12.3 million.
Dzsudzsak, capped 37 times by Hungary, will link up with his new team-mates on July 4 and he has already set himself a target for when he breaks into the side - even though he will not be eligible to play until August when the transfer window opens.
''The club has clear aims - they want to be a decisive factor in the Champions League,'' he said. ''We're now second in the table and the first three teams qualify to the Champions League.''
Dzsudzsak scored 16 goals for PSV last season and Marcel Brands, the club's technical manager, admitted they have lost a key member of the squad.
''We lose a highly-rated player,'' he said. ''Under Fred Rutten, Dzsudzsak developed into an international class player. His fine performances drew the attention of many clubs and his transfer was inevitable, although his choice for Anzhi may come as a slight surprise.''
