Manchester City midfielder Abdul Razak has joined Russian Premier League outfit Anzhi Makhachkala on loan for the rest of the season, according to BBC Sport.
20-year-old Razak, who has earned four caps for his native Ivory Coast, will embark upon his fourth loan spell away from the Etihad Stadium following previous stints in the Football League with Portsmouth, Brighton and Hove Albion and Charlton Athletic.
With a message to his followers on Twitter, Razak said: "To confirm I've signed for @fc_anji awaiting a work permit. Would like to thank everyone @MCFC plus the fans. Wish you all the best."
Razak has made seven appearances for City since joining from Crystal Palace in 2010. Former manager Roberto Mancini, who left the Premier League after being relieved of his duties following the climax of a tumultuous 2012/13 campaign that was fraught with discontent, handed Razak his professional debut in February 2011.
It has been an eventful summer for Anzhi. Wealthy owner Suleyman Kerimov appears to have grown hugely frustrated with the team, putting most of their star names up for sale and sacking manager Rene Meulensteen just 16 days after appointing him.
