Fred Benson open to Russia move

The talented striker is eyeing a move out of PEC Zwolle and will not resist a club in Russia as his contract runs out

Ghanaian-born Dutch striker Fred Benson is open to a move out of Eredivisie side PEC Zwolle as his contract with the newly-promoted side comes to an end.

Goal Ghana can exclusively reveal that Russian side Kuban Krasnodar and Zenit St. Petersburg are tracking him before the Russian transfer window shuts.

“I do not want to compare all countries with Poland. I had a bad experience there, but that does not mean that Russia is the same. If a club from Russia comes, I am willing to listen to them,” Benson told Soccernews.

“My current contract is ending and negotiations were suspended in November and I do not know if it will resume. But I do not care.”

“The coach has now opted for Guyon Fernandez. This is unfortunate for me. When I keep scoring as a substitute it must be good. Scoring goals, that's the point. I have also caught the eyes of other clubs,” the former Dutch Under-20 striker opined.
