Portuguese centre half Manuel Da Costa is joining Russian club Locomotiv Moscow on a permanent contract.

The 25-year-old is set to put pen to paper on a four-year deal with the Russian Premier League outfit after just two years in east London.

He will play at the Lokomotiv Stadium alongside another former Hammer, Victor Obinna, who signed a permaent deal with Loko just last week.

The deal that takes Da Costa to Russia is reported to be worth just 1.5million - around half the valule placed on Da Costa when he came to the Boleyn Ground in exchange for Savio Nsereko in 2009.
