Moreno rubbishes Kazan rumours

Espanyol defender Hector Moreno has denied reports that he could make a move to Rubin Kazan this summer.

The Mexico international has been linked with a move to Russia in recent weeks, but the 25-year-old has insisted the rumours aren’t true.

“Nobody has talked to me about this,” he told reporters. “I just learned about it through the Press.

“It has never crossed my mind to play in Russia.

“It is not a distraction for me. I am preparing well with Espanyol.

“This club has given me a lot, and has allowed me to grow as a player and as a person.”
