Spartak Moscow have signed Senegal forward Keita Balde on a three-year deal from the Italian Serie A team Cagliari, the Russian club said on Friday.

Financial details of the transfer were not disclosed.

Balde moved to Cagliari in August 2021 following two loan spells in Serie A — at Inter Milan and Sampdoria — while he was an AS Monaco player.

The 27-year-old has made 40 appearances for Senegal and scored six goals for his country. In May 2018, he was called up for the World Cup in Russia.
