Check out some of the latest men's volleyball transfers and rumors in the 2018 summer transfer window from Russian Superliga for July 11, 2018.


Fakel Novy Urengoy and famous Italian coach Camillo Placì reached an agreement on continuing the collaboration for one more season. „I feel great in Fakel, it will be my third season here. I sign only one-year contracts because if everything suits me, I'll stay, and if I’m not satisfied with it, I can make another choice,“ a 61-year-old expert said for the club website. The 2018/19 roster of Fakel is strengthened with a 22-year-old Denis Shenkel. Thus, the outside hitter has returned to the club with whom he won the Russian Youth League after four seasons. Shenkel spent these four seasons competing in Division 2 of which the last three with Akademiya-Kazan (Zenit Kazan „B“ team).


Yaroslavich Yaroslavl signed middle blocker Aleksey Pluzhnikov who came from Dinamo-LO Leningradskaya Oblast. The 27-year-old was a member of the golden Russia national team generation that conquered the 2011 FIVB U21 World Championship. The head coach of this team was Sergey Shlyapnikov, currently at the helm of senior „Zbornaya“ with whom he has just won the 2018 FIVB Nations League. Yaroslavich engaged another middle blocker who had successes with the country’s youth national team – Maksim Belogortsev. A 22-year-old player was the 2013 FIVB U19 World Championship and 2015 FIVB U21 World Championship winner as well as the 2013 CEV U19 European Championship and 2014 CEV U20 European Championship gold medalist. Last season, Belogortsev was the fourth best scorer in Yugra-Samotlor Nizhnevartovsk with 177 points.

The middle blocker Mikhail Morov will continue his career in Nova Novokuybyishevsk. Last season, a 22-year-old player averaged 32% reception while wearing the jersey of Yaroslavich Yaroslavl whose member he was in the season when the club earned promotion to Superliga – the 2016/17.

The Superliga newcomers Lokomotiv-Izumrud Ekaterinburg tied setter Evgeniy Rukavishnikov. This is a comeback of a 27-year-old player to the club in which he started his professional career (2010-2014). Rukavishnikov defended the colors of Yaroslavich Yaroslavl in the last season.
