Sayfutdinov is heading back to his hometown club in Russia and has swapped Polish Ekstraliga club Bydgoszcz for Czestochowa.

He's also made in a change in Sweden where he has switched from champions Vetlanda to SGP rivals Indianerna.

"It will be one step up for me. It’ll be a change of atmosphere around me and we will see how it goes," Sayfutdinov said. "Czestochowa and Indianerna are very good clubs.

"I am even moving in Russia. I’m leaving St Petersburg and I’m moving to Salavat where my family lives. I think it will be better for me. There has been too much change around me and I think this will help me."

Sayfutdinov started his season with six points in the New Zealand SGP at Western Springs last month.
