OFFICIAL: Lass to Anzhi, pending medical


As expected with the announcement of Michael Essien's last minute loan move from Chelsea to Real Madrid on one year loan, Lass was going to see the exit door and it has happened.

Real Madrid's official website has confirmed he will be joining Anzhi Makhachkala on a permanent basis pending a medical examination.

The nitty gritty of the deal and contract terms will only become clearer once he signs a contract which is expected to happen soon. Anzhi currently sit sixth in the Russian League with manager Gus Hiddink in charge and former Real Madrid defender and legend Roberto Carlos as Sporting Director.

While I've not been a fan of Lass due to his discipline problems and holding the club to ransom with his wage demands and speaking out on many occasions with his desire to quit, he has played well on plenty of instances and isn't given the due credit he sometimes deserves. Here's to hoping he has a wonderful career ahead with Anzhi and future clubs.
