In a move that has been anticipated for a little while now, Croatia forward Eduardo da Silva has signed a four-year contract with Shaktar Donetsk, according to a report on the Ukranian club's official website.

At age 27, Edu should be reaching his peak now, but after his terrifying leg break at Birmingham City in 2008, he has struggled to replicate the promise the he showed upon his signing in 2007.  Of course, that didn't prevent him from scoring two goals that immediately stick out in the mind: that preposterous outside-of-the-foot volley into the opposite top corner against Burnley, and the crucial header against West Ham in the FA Cup last year.

Here's wishing Eduardo, a good player and a really good guy by all accounts, all the best in the Ukraine.
