ST PETERSBURG - Serbia striker Danko Lazovic has joined Zenit St Petersburg on a four-year contract from Dutch side PSV Eindhoven, the Russian Premier League club said on Wednesday.

Lazovic will join the team on their pre-season training camp in Turkey on Thursday, Zenit announced on their website.

The Russian transfer window remains open until the domestic league season starts later this month.

Lazovic, 26, is expected to replace Turkish forward Fatih Tekke, who was sold to Russian champions Rubin Kazan last month after falling out of favour with Zenit's new Italian coach Luciano Spalletti.
