Howedes Joins Lokomotiv Moscow After Juve Loan

World Cup winner Benedikt Howedes has agreed a four-year contract with Russian champions Lokomotiv Moscow, ending his long association with Schalke.

The Germany international started all of his country’s matches as Joachim Low’s men triumphed in Brazil at the 2014 World Cup.

But the 30-year-old has been dogged by a series of injuries in recent years and was only able to make three Serie A appearances while on loan at Juventus for the 2017-18 season.

However, Lokomotiv said stringent medical tests conducted in Italy did not reveal any issues that would prevent Howedes from joining the club.
