Transfer news – Russian superstar Egor Kliuka moves to Saint Petersburg
News from the clubs

Saint Petersburg, Russia, June 26, 2020. The 25-year-old star outside hitter Egor Kliuka has joined the ranks of Zenit SAINT PETERSBURG after spending the last few seasons with Fakel NOVY URENGOY. The Russian heavyweight announced this major ‘coup’ only a few days after securing the transfers of French setter Antoine Brizard and Russian opposite Victor Poletaev to compose a truly star-studded team.

The 25-year-old Kliuka is a member of the Russian national team as well – with whom he is very likely to compete at the postponed Tokyo 2020 Olympics in the summer of 2021.

“The decision to continue my career with Zenit is the result of many factors,” Kliuka said. “I look forward to the start of the season, since I really miss Volleyball. I have been working out in the weight room, and even in the sand - but still I want to get back to the court as soon as possible again. I hope that St. Petersburg fans will provide us with the most passionate support at our home matches.”

A 2017 European champion with Russia, Kliuka made his CEV Champions League debut last year with Fakel NOVY URENGOY, reaching the quarterfinals before the coronavirus crisis resulted in the cancellation of the knockout stage of Europe’s elite competition. As per the final standing of the 2020 Russian Superleague, whose season ended prematurely because of the pandemic as well, Zenit SAINT PETERSBURG are due to compete in the 2021 edition of the CEV Volleyball Challenge Cup.
