The Ghana international has arrived in Russia to complete his move to Kuban Krasnodar
According to Metro-sportsfr, the lanky midfield enforcer landed in Russia in the early hours of Saturday and will undergo his medicals in the coming weeks before committing to a three-year deal.
The 23-year-old was also on the wanted list of Hull City who intended to grab him within 48 hours but it now seems he must look elsewhere.
Evian have lined up a bid for Dan Nistor, a 25-year-old midfielder of Romanian club Pandurii Targu Jiu as Rabiu’s replacement.
Rabiu has been a revelation in the Black Stars and the Evian setup over the last six months, playing every single game and putting up fantastic performances and was on the radar of clubs including Real Betis, Benfica and Fulham.
