Everything you must know about Delvin N'Dinga.

The transfers window opened less than a month ago and Loko has already signed three players. This time Lokomotiv have taken on loan with option to buy Congolese midfielder Delvin N'Dinga from AS Monaco.

Delvin Chanel N'Dinga was born on 14 March 1988 in Pointe Noire, Republic of the Congo. He has begun playing football since childhood as a сentral midfielder. N'Dinga began his career with CNFF and then joined Diables Noirs. He left Diables Noirs to sign with AJ Auxerre in July 2005. In the 2011–12 season, N'Dinga was linked with a move to Lyon as a replacement for Jeremy Toulalan, who joined Spanish "big spenders" side of Malaga. Previously, N'Dinga stated to move to Lyon, but president Gérard Bourgoin refused to let him to go, having rejected several offers from Lyon.The negotiations continued throughout the summer transfers window and finally, N'Dinga signed a new contract until 2015. Following Auxerre's relegation from Ligue 1 in the 2011–12 season, he joined Ligue 2 side AS Monaco in July 2012, for about 6M. He played only 27 games for AS Monaco and in the 2013-14 season, N'Dinga left the club to join Greek side Olympiacos on loan, with an option to make the move permanent next summer with a fee of €3M. He started a second loan spell with Olympiacos in July 2014.

As we know, after the departure of Lassana Diarra in 2014 Lokomotiv needed to strengthen the central zone. There are still a lot of argues about who the Moscow club needs and who is able to replace the French player. Many names appeared in the Net from Didier Digard to Charles Kaboré, but Loko’s management in spite of all rumors has announced another signing from Ligue 1 (AS Monaco). The advantage of signing him is that he's on loan, therefore Loko has nothing to lose. 

I think that in connection of the FFP, it has been a quite right and deliberate decision to sign N'Dinga. However, of course, you may ask «why»? I’ll try to explain Lokomotiv's reasons and to give my point of view. As we can see from his biography, he has played in many clubs during his career, trying to face two strong leagues. The greatest successes were achieved in Olympiakos, where he was one of the main players of the team for two years and helped to win the Super League two times:2013–14, 2014-15 and also a Greek Cup: 2014–15. Нe has got several strong qualities which were noticed by Lokomotiv's Head Coach Igor Cherevchenko as picking, the first pass and the game on the second floor. He's a qualified midfielder, a typical «6» on the pitch. He has got a wonderful stamina and make good interceptions. His pace is okay, but the most important indicators for a midfielder are strength and defensive qualities: I've noticed them in him.

According to his career we can add he has got a huge experience in Champions League. He helped his teammates to beat giants of football like Manchester United, Juventus and Atletico Madrid. Without any doubt his attempt and sophistication will help to reach great results in the international football.

Guys, don’t be so pessimists, just believe in Delvin Chanel N’Dinga and he will do his best.
