Shevchenko signs for Dynamo Kiev

Former European Footballer of the Year Andriy Shevchenko has agreed to rejoin Dynamo Kiev from Chelsea.

Shevchenko has signed a two-year contract," the Ukrainian club confirmed.

Kiev added the 32-year-old Ukraine striker would be presented as their player on Sunday.

Shevchenko never justified the club record 30 million pounds fee that Chelsea paid AC Milan for him in 2006. He scored only nine league goals in his first two campaigns and was loaned back to the Italian team last season.

Shevchenko, who left Kiev for Milan in 1999, was also in danger of being left out of the London club's Champions League squad when it is named on Tuesday.

The Ukraine captain is one of the leading scorers in the Champions League and will get a chance to add to his tally of goals with Kiev, who have been drawn in Group F with holders Barcelona, Inter Milan and Rubin Kazan.
