Djalo joins Mordovia Saransk

Portugal's Yannick Djalo has joined Russian Premier League side Mordovia Saransk until the end of the season on loan from Benfica, the Russian club reported Monday.

No financial details were available of the loan deal for the 28-year-old striker, who played last season with the United States MLS club San Jose Earthquakes also on loan.

Djalo scored 23 goals in 98 matches with Sporting Lisbon before joining city rivals Benfica in 2012.

He has won just the one cap with Portugal, against Cyprus in a qualifier for Euro 2012.
