RSC Anderlecht has reached an agreement with Spartak Moscow about the definitive transfer of captain Sofiane Hanni to the Russian club, currently third in the league.
The Algerian midfielder signed at the Astridpark in the summer of 2016 after an excellent season with KV Mechelen. He gave the most assists of the season there, and also won the Pro football player of the Year award and the Ebony Boot.
The 27-year-old international played 55 matches in Brussels during his first season, scored 13 goals and gave 19 assists. He also played a big part in the nice European campaign and the winning of the 34th national title.
This season, Sofiane Hanni played 31 games, in which he scored 10 goals – including a great hattrick in Standard during his final match for the Purple & White – and gave 6 assists. In total, Hanni played 86 matches for RSCA.
The club would like to thank Hanni for his professionalism and hard work for the club. Thank you for everything and good luck in your further career, Sofiane!
