The 23-year-old had asked to leave after receiving an offer from the Russian side and a deal had been sealed that was satisfactory for all three parties, Espanyol said on their website.

"It was the opportunity for my future," Espanyol quoted Wakaso as saying. "When I got the offer I called the president many times to get him to accept as it was important for me."

Espanyol did not give financial details.
