OFFICIAL: Dynamo Kiev Announce Andriy Shevchenko Signing From Chelsea

The Ukrainian returns to his homeland...
Andriy Shevchenko has rejoined his old club Dynamo Kyiv on a free transfer from Chelsea.

The Ukrainian striker has failed to impress at Stamford Bridge after his £30m move from A.C. Milan in 2006.

After spending last season on-loan to A.C. Milan in a bid to return to form, Shevchenko returned to Chelsea where he did not prominently feature in Carlo Ancelotti's plans.

The 33-year-old held talks with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and concluded the move would be best for both parties, with the Russian releasing Shevchenko from the remaining 11 months on his contract.

The striker returns to his old club to lead the Ukrainian side to Champions League success.

According to Dynamo's official website, Shevchenko's official unveiling will take place tomorrow, August 30th at 15:00 with FC Dynamo Kiev President Igor Surkis and coach Valery Gazzayev welcoming back their favourite son.
