The exodus at Anzhi Makhachkala has begun with three Russian internationals in the form of Igor Denisov,Alexandr Kokorin and Yuri Zhirkov.
The Russian big spenders are offloading their star players in order to cut costs at the club.
Other stars such as Cameroon international Samuel Eto'o and Brazilian playmaker Willian are also available.
Club owner Suleiman Kerimov has implemented an immediate cost-cutting effect and so he has elected to sell a number of their important players.
The Russian trio that have left Dagestan have moved to Dinamo Moscow who wasted no time in capitalising on the clear out implemented by Kerimov.
The fee paid for the Russian trio is undisclosed but Dinamo have secured three very good players who will no doubt improve their squad.
Denisov is a proven player from his time at Zenit St Petersburg and also for the Russian national team. Yuri Zhirkov is a former Chelsea player and has also featured heavily for the Russian national team. Young Kokorin is seen as a star of the future and is already making a name for himself in the Russian national team.
There will be other stars leaving the Dagestan in the coming weeks as the clear out is set to continue. Eto'o is linked with a move to Chelsea, Manchester United and Inter Milan while Willian is said to be a target for Tottenham Hotspur,Chelsea and Liverpool.
