The transfers window opened less than a month ago and Loko has already signed three players. This time Lokomotiv have taken on loan with option to buy Congolese midfielder Delvin N'Dinga from AS Monaco.
As we know, after the departure of Lassana Diarra in 2014 Lokomotiv needed to strengthen the central zone. There are still a lot of argues about who the Moscow club needs and who is able to replace the French player. Many names appeared in the Net from Didier Digard to Charles Kaboré, but Loko’s management in spite of all rumors has announced another signing from Ligue 1 (AS Monaco). The advantage of signing him is that he's on loan, therefore Loko has nothing to lose.
I think that in connection of the FFP, it has been a quite right and deliberate decision to sign N'Dinga. However, of course, you may ask «why»? I’ll try to explain Lokomotiv's reasons and to give my point of view. As we can see from his biography, he has played in many clubs during his career, trying to face two strong leagues. The greatest successes were achieved in Olympiakos, where he was one of the main players of the team for two years and helped to win the Super League two times:2013–14, 2014-15 and also a Greek Cup: 2014–15. Нe has got several strong qualities which were noticed by Lokomotiv's Head Coach Igor Cherevchenko as picking, the first pass and the game on the second floor. He's a qualified midfielder, a typical «6» on the pitch. He has got a wonderful stamina and make good interceptions. His pace is okay, but the most important indicators for a midfielder are strength and defensive qualities: I've noticed them in him.
According to his career we can add he has got a huge experience in Champions League. He helped his teammates to beat giants of football like Manchester United, Juventus and Atletico Madrid. Without any doubt his attempt and sophistication will help to reach great results in the international football.
Guys, don’t be so pessimists, just believe in Delvin Chanel N’Dinga and he will do his best.
