Yura Movsisyan’s return to Salt Lake City appears to be imminent, according to a report from reliable reporter Chris Kamrani of the Salt Lake Tribune.
The Tribune learned through league sources Sunday that terms have been agreed upon to bring the 28-year-old Spartak Moscow striker back to Major League Soccer and RSL after spending the last six seasons professionally both in Denmark and Russia.
Movsisyan’s agent, Patrick McCabe, told The Tribune on Saturday night that discussions between RSL and Spartak were ongoing, adding, “But not anything final.”
Movsisyan originally left RSL to pursue a career in Europe in Jan. 2010, but RSL extended a contract offer despite the expiration of Movsisyan’s previous contract, which allowed RSL to retain his MLS rights if he ever chose to return to the league down the road.
Six years later, he looks to be headed back.
