Everton midfielder Jean Philippe Gbamin has joined CSKA Moscow ahead of Russia’s transfer deadline day.

The 26-year old signed for Everton from Mainz for £25million in 2019 but has made just eight appearances in a torrid spell blighted by injuries. 

In his one Premier League start this season against Wolves he was taken off at half time.

CSKA have moved to sign him on loan and have also held talks with Leicester City for Nampalys Mendy with Russia’s deadline for transfers on Tuesday. 

Gbamin joins CSKA as they sit in fourth place in the Russian Premier League, eight points behind leaders Zenit St Petersburg.

The 11-week winter break for the division comes to an end this weekend, with CSKA taking on Spartak Moscow.

The Senegal international Mendy, who was recently named in the Team of the Tournament at this year’s African Cup of Nations, saw a potential move to Galatasaray fall through.

Mendy has only accumulated 31 minutes for the Foxes this season in the EFL Cup against Brighton & Hove Albion. 

It is, however, unlikely Moscow will continue their pursuit of Mendy now that they’ve completed a deal for Gbamin.
