RPL clubs continue to strengthen their squads ahead of the start of the new season. Before him, by the way, there is very little time left. There have been some interesting exchanges in the last week. Almost all – with the participation of legionnaires.
Previous RPL transfer summary:
Loko took a competitor Dziuba and Zenit took a player from the Russian national team. Transfers of the week in RPL
Fedor Kudryashov: Antalyaspor → Fakel (free agent)

The Voronezh club is reinforcing the squad with free agents. A logical step given the low budget. Previously, Vitaly Gudiev, Alexander Belenov and Alexander Dolgov moved to Fakel, and now they experienced Fyodor Kudryashov. The veteran defender spent the last three years at Antalyaspor, leaving the Turkish club as a free agent.
Kudryashov himself admitted that a couple of years ago he was considering the option of ending his degree. According to the 36-year-old footballer, he then had problems. I even had to seek help from a psychologist. Last season Fedor made 15 appearances in all tournaments and in total he has 110 appearances for Antalyaspor.
Ilya Shkurin: CSKA → Stal Mielec (loan)
Ilya Shkurin (left)
The Belarusian striker joined CSKA at the beginning of 2020. This transfer cannot be called successful either for the club or for the player. Shkurin played only 19 matches in the jersey of the army team (three goals), but regularly hung out on loan. In his biography, such clubs as Dynamo kyiv, Rakuv, Maccabi Petah Tikva appeared. By the way, the striker went to Israel after he unilaterally suspended the contract with CSKA.
Now 23-year-old Shkurin will again play in the Polish championship – Stal Mielec rented him until the end of the season. Apparently, Ilya will leave CSKA as a free agent, because his contract expires next summer.
We chose the most legendary form of RPL clubs:
Spartak with AKAI, Zenit-2007 or CSKA-2005: which form of RPL teams is the most legendary?
Guilherme Shettine: Braga → Ural (€500,000)

Last week, Ural completed the transfers of two legionnaires at once. The first is striker Guilherme Shettine. A striker who was bought from Braga for half a million euros. By the age of 27, Shettine had played in Brazil, Portugal, Switzerland, Spain, the United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia. True, he did not stay anywhere for a long time.
The striker joined Braga in 2020, but since then he has only played 18 games (zero goals, zero assists). He was loaned out three times, and Shettine spent the previous season at Grasshopper (21 games, eight goals, three assists). Perhaps moving to Russia will take Guilherme’s career to a new level.
Italo: Santa Clara → Ural (loan)

Italo is another Brazilian who moved to Ural from Portugal. Unlike Shettine, he plays as a central defender. In addition, he is younger than a compatriot (21 years old). Italo moved to Santa Clara in September 2022, but did not make his debut for the new club until November. Last season, the defender did not come into his own in Santa Clara, only 12 games in the championship.
In such a situation, the parties found the optimal solution. Italo will spend the next season in the Ural, which he rented before the deadline. Before moving to Europe, the defender played in his homeland at Figueirense and San Bernardo.
Pedrinho: Lokomotiv → América Mineiro (on loan)

The Brazilian joined Lokomotiv in September 2022. It is true that it was only enough for nine games. In the cup match with Khimki, Pedrinho delivered four goals to the rival, but did not score again in Russia. This was followed by a return to his homeland – “Sao Paulo” rented a football player. This period of Pedrinho’s career also turned out to be short-lived. 10 games, three goals, accusation of domestic violence, early contract termination. By the way, the player himself did not admit his guilt. Now the 23-year-old striker will spend the rest of the year at América Mineiro.
Who will play with whom in the Russian Cup group:
“Spartak” was in the “death group”. The results of the Russian Cup draw – 2023/2024
Dennis Hadjikadunich: Rostov → Hamburg (on loan)
The Bosnian defender joined Rostov in 2018, but was later loaned out several times. He suspended the contract, played in Malmö and Mallorca, and has now joined the Second Bundesliga club. Hamburg have loaned Hadjikadunić until the end of the 2023/2024 season. Apparently, after that, the Bosnian will leave Rostov, because his contract expires next summer.
Last season, Hadjikadunić played for Mallorca, where he played eight games. And now he again took advantage of the FIFA rule and suspended the contract with Rostov. In the near future, the player will join Hamburg at the training camp in Austria.
Roberto Fernández: Bolívar → Baltika (on loan)
Another Roberto Fernández appeared in the RPL, not to be confused with the Dynamo defender. It is true that the newcomer to Baltika represents Bolivia, not Paraguay. The 23-year-old defender has gone on loan to Russia, while the Kaliningrad team has priority purchase rights. Baltika has found a player in Bolívar, the club with the most titles in Bolivia. There Fernández played 127 games, scored 19 goals and gave 27 assists.
Since 2019, the boy made his debut with the Bolivian national team. Since then, he has made 27 appearances for the national team. Fernández is the second newcomer from Baltika to the summer window. Previously, the Portuguese defender João Lameira joined the squad.
Baltika has already beaten the best club in RPL. So far only on the freight train:
Dzyuba mockingly sent the ball between the goalkeeper’s legs. But Loko lost to the newcomer from RPL. Video
Milson: Pari NN → Maccabi Tel Aviv (€700,000)

Another legionnaire left Russia. The striker moved to the Nizhny Novgorod club at the beginning of 2022, but he played only 29 matches for him (two goals, four assists). A year later, the African footballer went to Turkey, he was rented by Ankaragucu. There Milson scored five goals in 12 meetings, but the Turkish club refused to buy the player. However, the striker quickly agreed to a personal contract with Maccabi under the 3+1 scheme, with the clubs agreeing on compensation.
Milson is the third player sold by Paris NN during the current window. Earlier, Nizhny Novgorod parted ways with goalkeeper Nikita Goylo (€540 thousand) and winger Lars Olden Larsen (€325 thousand).
