Ghana international Rabiu Mohammed has completed a move back to Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala after two years on the sidelines. 

The 28-year-old completed his return on Sunday, having seen a long injury spell ruin his first stint. 

In summer 2016, the midfielder joined the Eagles on a three-and-a-half year deal from Kuban Krasnodar, but his fitness denied him an appearance, leading to the termination of his contract. 

"Today Ghanaian midfielder [Rabiu Mohammed] signed an agreement with the club," Anzhi announced via their official website.

"The 28-year-old central midfielder is known to Russian football fans for his performances for Kuban Krasnodar, for whom he played more than 50 matches in various competitions. 

"Recall that in 2016, the midfielder worked with Anzhi, but then a traumatic and prolonged rehabilitation [after an injury] did not allow him to appear in the team."

From local side Liberty Professionals where he began his professional career, Rabiu graced the pitch for Spanish club Gimnastic de Tarragona and Xerez before joining French outfit Avian TG. 

He then left for Kuban in 2013 before crossing carpets to Anzhi three years later.

He was also once on the books of Italian clubs Sampdoria and Udinese. 

The 2009 Fifa Under-20 World Cup winner has played for Ghana at the Africa Cup of Nations as well as the Fifa World Cup (2014).
