MOSCOW, July 11 (RIA Novosti)
Lokomotiv Moscow have released Moldovan midfielder Stanislav Ivanov, the club said Wednesday.
The 31-year-old has been a fringe player at best since joining from now-dissolved FC Moscow in 2009.
Ivanov made only 17 appearances for Lokomotiv and spent most of the time on loan in Krylya Sovetov and Rostov.
His contract was due to expire in June 2013.
In their quest to improve upon last season's seventh place, Lokomotiv have made two significant signings so far this summer, acquiring Russian winger Alexander Samedov from Dynamo Moscow and Croatian defender Vedran Corluka from Tottenham Hotspur.
Former Croatia coach Slaven Bilic took over from Jose Couceiro after Euro 2012.

News that Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin would resign in order to run for the mayoral election in September came as quite a shock. Sobyanin’s political potential is fairly dubious, not to mention his approval ratings. He has not finished many of the projects he initiated and the electoral effect from these projects is expected to come a bit later than September 2013. Sobyanin’s opponents were not entirely unprepared for this blitzkrieg.
