Russian outfit Dinamo Moscow confirm that they have agreed a deal with Manchester United to sign Alexander Buttner this summer.

Dynamo Moscow have confirmed that they have agreed a deal with Manchester United for defender Alexander Buttner.

The 25-year-old, who has made just 13 Premier League appearances since arriving at Old Trafford in 2012, is believed to have agreed a three-year deal with the Russian club.

The left-back told Dinamo's official website: "I want to play in the Champions League and win trophies.

"Dinamo have a very strong team and I believe we can fight for first place this season."

Buttner joined United from Vitesse two years ago but, with Patrice Evra signing a one-year extension, coupled with the club's reported pursuit of Luke Shaw, it was likely that the Dutchman would still find first-team opportunities hard to come by.
